What does Inclusion mean at Syracuse?

We offer REAL opportunities for our students to participate in every aspect of campus life. SU coursework, sporting and social events, and our strong, inclusive community are what makes InclusiveU a success.

College is an option

What are you passionate about? What does your future look like? Taishoff Center developed InclusiveU to ensure that anybody who wants to attend college can do so. Our mission is to make sure you leave SU with the strong foundation of skills necessary to pursue your own dreams.

Disability = Diversity

Syracuse University is known all over the world as a leader in disability and higher education. At SU, we celebrate disability because it makes our campus stronger, more diverse, and much more interesting; until everyone is included, there is no real inclusion for anyone. InclusiveU is an initiative of the Taishoff Center for Inclusive Higher Education, committed to individualized and inclusive higher educational opportunities for students with intellectual and developmental disabilities.
