Penn State Harrisburg

Penn State Harrisburg has developed an inclusive Postsecondary Education (PSE) program.  Students with Intellectual Disabilities enroll in academic courses with non-disabled peers and are full members of the campus community, and also participate in a Continuing Education Customer Relations course.  The students receive social and academic support from Peer Mentors, who are currently enrolled full-time students at Penn State Harrisburg. Under partnerships with employers in the region, students visit job sites with a job coach to observe work and explore various careers with the opportunity for work experience and apprenticeships. The top three priority areas for this program are employment, self-determination, and college course access.
