Integrated Studies


Welcome to Integrated Studies. We are an inclusive post-secondary initiative for young adults age 18-26 with an intellectual disability. Our campus community of administration, faculty, staff, and coaches supports each student as they develop a person-centered plan to guide their journey at Millersville University. Students enrolled in Integrated Studies become fully immersed in the Millersville campus by engaging in academics, career exploration, and building relationships. The curriculum immerses each student in undergraduate courses, internships, student employment, student housing and a vibrant campus life of organizations and events. We strive to create inclusive communities where students feel connected, challenged, and supported while participating in a high quality inclusive post-secondary college experience.

The Integrated Studies initiative at Millersville provides students with intellectual disabilities access to full-time, inclusive postsecondary education and an integrated residential experience. The goals of the program are to provide an opportunity for students to develop and enhance their social, academic, and employment connections, as well as to develop their self-determination and self-advocacy capabilities. The INST Program aspires to prepare each student for gainful employment.


The purpose of Integrated Studies is to provide access and support in an inclusive postsecondary education program for students with intellectual disability at Millersville University. Integrated Studies enables, establishes, enhances, redefines, maintains and/or defends valued social roles within the context of a liberal arts university. This is accomplished as much as possible, through culturally valued means. Integrated Studies' processes, procedures, and administrative functions are embedded in existing university services. 


All students enrolled in Integrated Studies receive support from staff, educational support coaches, and the natural support within the campus community.
