Inclusive Post-Secondary Education (IPSE)
The IPSE Society of Alberta is a non-profit organization that provides individuals with developmental disabilities a university experience, and support transiting to employment. We celebrate personal gifts and passions, while addressing barriers from both a societal and an individual perspective.
Inclusive Post-Secondary Education (IPSE) facilitates opportunities for diverse learners to cultivate their academic and social aspirations, at either the University of Calgary or St. Mary’s University. Students have a distinct voice in their learning outcomes and actively participate in designing their own learning model tailored to their preferences, abilities and interests. Instruction is paced to a student’s unique needs.
We are deeply invested in positive, enduring outcomes for each of our students and alumni, and acknowledge that challenges are best met in a way that promote both independence and resilience. We aspire to create new and innovative ways to address the hard questions. To this end, we provide personalized supports to our students and graduates while building community alliances to ensure long-term success.
"We believe all people can embrace who they are, define their future, and change the world."
