What is Inclusive Post-Secondary Education?

Inclusive Education provides an opportunity for individuals to take on the valued role of student in a valued context, the university.

There are generally three pillars of inclusive post-secondary education:

Academics

  • Auditing one class per semester
  • Completing assignments: Take part in group work, presentations, performances, writing papers, etc.
  • Working side-by-side with supportive peers
  • Using assistive technology to do readings

Social Connections

  • Developing a social network of peers, acquaintances and friends
  • Expanding leisure and recreation activities (on and off campus)
  • Meeting for coffee and lunch breaks
  • Inviting others to share time with family and friends
  • Getting to know people who may be future employers or co-workers

Employment

  • Participating in career guidance
  • Completing a professional portfolio
  • Work-based learning opportunities
  • Finding employment

The goal is for students to have an authentic experience from the time they register and choose their courses through to convocation.

Beyond this, the long-term goal is for students to have a meaningful life in the community after graduation.

What is Campus For All?

Campus For All is an initiative that provides support to 12 University of Regina students who experience intellectual disability. It is not a program as there are no separate courses or curricula.

Each student audits one class offered by the University per semester. Students do "participatory auditing" which means that unlike traditional auditing (students generally just sit in on a class), they complete modified assignments and exams, participate in presentations, class discussions, group work and related experiences.

Students are encouraged to make university a priority and to participate in all aspects of campus life.
