||The WCU UP Program provides an inclusive, two-year, on-campus living and learning
experience for college-aged persons with intellectual disability. The goal of the
program is to facilitate UP students' transition from secondary school to adult life
with education, employment, and independent living. UP students live in on-campus
residence halls distributed throughout university under the same university policies
that apply to all WCU students. On-campus life is fully integrated and inclusive.
There are no separate facilities, settings, or classes for UP students. WCU undergraduate
students are recruited to provide paid and unpaid support to facilitate UP Students
living on campus, attending classes, engaging in social and recreational activities,
becoming involved in student organizations, and developing friendships.
