Movin’ On in Montana is a four-day, three-night on-campus experience for high school students with disabilities sponsored by the University of Montana, specifically the Rural Institute for Inclusive Communities, Disability Services for Students, and Vocational Rehabilitation. Summer 2017 was the third consecutive Movin’ On program, and the purpose continues to be to introduce high school students with disabilities to the college experience. The goal is to help students recognize that college (e.g., university or technical college) is a possibility if they choose to pursue postsecondary education and to provide students with disabilities with critical information regarding resources and supports to increase their likelihood of success should they enroll in college.
