We want to congratulate the first graduating class from Portland State University’s four year Think College Inclusion Oregon program. We are so proud of you! Our Think Inclusive College West Coast Coalition was involved in bringing this opportunity, the first university program for students with intellectual disabilities, to Oregon and now two of our staff members, Rachel Esteve and Will Larson, are PSU graduates with a Career and Community Studies certificate. Graduates made it through their last year of school while experiencing the devastating effects of the COVID pandemic and systemic racism. Although graduation events are not as imagined this year, we hope graduates will celebrate their achievements with pride and joy. Graduates you are important and deserve success. Commencements signify the beginning of something new and you will help lead the way! Way to go class of 2020!
