One Program, Two Campuses
Aggies Elevated at Utah State University is Utah's original college program for students with intellectual and/or developmental disabilities (I/DD). Located at the USU main campus in Logan and the USU Eastern campus in Price.
Aggies Elevated is designed to empower college-age students with I/DD to become resilient problem-solvers and self-determined citizens of inclusive communities. With the assistance of staff and invited stakeholders, Aggies Elevated students create a person-centered plan to identify challenges, build on individual strengths, seek out and utilize supports, and encourage personal responsibility in five domains (Lifelong Learning, Independent Living, Community Involvement, Self-Advocacy, and Career Development). The program’s goal for graduates is competitive integrated employment, full community inclusion, and independent living to their highest ability.
- The average post-graduation employment rate for TPSID program graduates is 59%.
- The employment rate for adults with disabilities in general is 31.4%.
- The employment rate for adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities is 18%.
- In addition, about 35% of our graduates have earned associate's and/or bachelor's degrees, or are actively in progress.
