About

UST is launching a new Associate's Degree program specifically designed for people with learning differences! This program is one-of-a-kind as there are no others like it in the entire country, and money is being raised to support the continued success of the students in this program. Students in this new program will earn a fully accredited associates degree and gain valuable work experience as they complete an internship near the end of their studies. All courses are rooted in UST's core curriculum and incorporate the Catholic tradition for faith and reason. Using Universal Design for Learning (UDL) as an instructional modality, students in the program are provided with individualized instruction that is tailored to 21st century learners. This program provides a much-needed opportunity that reminds us that ALL people have the right to education that is meaningful and inclusive!
