A phenomenon is spreading across institutions of higher education (IHEs)--the participation of students with intellectual disabilities (ID) in inclusive postsecondary education programs. Data on two cohorts of first-year students with ID indicate that these students are experiencing college life, as measured by the National Survey of Student Engagement (NSSE), similarly to other first-year college students. These results provide preliminary evidence of the feasibility and value of educating students with cognitive challenges on university campuses.
