Aggies Elevated is an inclusive, post-secondary, on-campus experience for young adults with intellectual disabilities. This two-year certificate program is housed at the Center for Persons with Disabilities at Utah State University. The program’s dual emphasis in career exploration and independent living prepares our students to either continue their education in a degree program or to find a fulfilling career in a field they enjoy.
Our Mission Statement:
Aggies Elevated at Utah State University believes that all individuals, regardless of ability, have the right to meaningful employment, lifelong learning, self-determination and full community inclusion. Utilizing the MyCLIMB (My Career Ladder to Independence, Maturity & Balance) person-centered planning model, Aggies Elevated students, along with invited family members and/or other stakeholders, will chart their own paths toward independence within an individualized framework of supports that identifies challenges, builds on individual strengths and encourages personal responsibility.
