The University of Iowa REACH Program is a two-year, transition, certificate program for college students with disabilities, including but not limited too; autism, learning disabilities, down syndrome, and intellectual disabilities. UI REACH provides a Big Ten college experience to empower young adults to become independent, engaged members of the community. Courses, campus life, and career preparation assist students in reaching their full potential. UI REACH strives to maintain contact with alumni to encourage them to become independent adults by utilizing the independent living and career-related skills they learned in the program.
