Program Supports Students with Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities
BOSTON – Senator Michael O. Moore (D-2nd Worcester District) and Representative James J. O’Day (D-14th Worcester District) are encouraging families to attend an upcoming information session regarding the Massachusetts Inclusive Concurrent Enrollment Initiative (MAICEI). The program supports students with disabilities to achieve their educational and career goals in a college environment.
“The MAICEI program presents tremendous opportunities for students who are interested in pursuing a college education,” said Senator Moore, who serves as Senate Chair of the Joint Committee on Higher Education. “I hope that families will take advantage of attending this information session to learn more about the initiative and to hear the experiences of former program participants, parents and program coordinators.”
“MAICEI provides students with intellectual disabilities the opportunity to take part in college life and all the experiences that come with it,” said Representative O’Day. “This information session is a great way for the Worcester community to learn more about the benefits MAICEI can offer for students, with and without disabilities.”
Funded by the Commonwealth since 2007, MAICEI offers grants to college-school partnerships to support eligible public high school students with intellectual disabilities, ages 18–22, to increase their academic and career success by being included in a college or university community of learners.
The information session is scheduled for Wednesday, November 14, 2018 from 6:00 PM until 7:00 PM in the Blue Lounge of the Student Center at Worcester State University located at 486 Chandler Street in Worcester. Registration is not required and parking is available in campus lots H, L and K.
