Aggies Elevated is a federally designated Comprehensive Transition Program (CTP) at Utah State University that offers a two-year certificate in Integrated College and Community Studies for young adults with intellectual disabilities.
People with disabilities make meaningful contributions to our communities and to society. However, we recognize that people with disabilities and their families are historically ignored, marginalized and excluded. Therefore, our mission is to prepare high quality professionals; identify, implement, and disseminate evidence-based practices; and conduct research and outreach in collaboration with community partners. Our work is critical to ensure the full inclusion of people with disabilities across educational, independent living, and employment domains.
Special Educators and Rehab Counselors are in high demand nationwide, and they have a lasting effect on the people they serve.
