KSHEP envisions a higher education system that is welcoming of students with intellectual and developmental disabilities, increasing opportunities for success in academics, employment, and community engagement.
The mission of the Kentucky Supported Higher Education Partnership (KSHEP) is to increase higher education options, access, and success for students with intellectual and developmental disabilities across the Commonwealth.
The KSHEP network is supported by the statewide technical assistance center (TAC) for supported higher education in Kentucky, which is a project of the Human Development Institute (HDI) at the University of Kentucky (UK). We see all IHEs in this network as true partners in the effort to increase higher education options, access, and success for students with intellectual and developmental disabilities.
Current CTPs in Kentucky
There are currently four Kentucky IHEs with CTP programs: Northern Kentucky University, Murray State University, Bluegrass Community and Technical College, and The University of Kentucky (application submitted). These are all part of the larger Kentucky Supported Higher Education Partnership (KSHEP).
