STEPS Forward

STEPS Forward, through the BC Initiative for Inclusive Post-Secondary Education (BC-IPSE), works in collaboration with UVic to include students with developmental disabilities to continue their education after leaving high school.

STEPS Forward inclusion facilitators work closely with the UVic campus community to support these young adults to engage in an authentic student experience, enriched by their participation in all aspects of the campus, while studying courses over 4-5 years in a field of study offered by the university.

Visit the BC-IPSE website for more information.
