Program Overview

Massasoit Community College is in the planning stages of developing an Inclusive Concurrent Enrollment (ICE) Program with an anticipated start date of August 2017. The MAICEI program is a unique dual enrollment opportunity for high school students with severe intellectual disabilities between the ages of 18 and 21 who are currently enrolled in one of the partnering school districts.

Massasoit Community College is excited to partner with the Brockton and Braintree public school districts to design and develop a Massachusetts Inclusive Concurrent Enrollment Initiative (MAICEI) program. We look forward to collaborating with our school district partners to design an inclusive program that will smoothly transition students with severe disabilities into college courses and extra-curricular activities to meet their individual goals at their community college. The opportunity afforded by a MAICEI planning grant to engage in an extended, structured planning process will help ensure that we are designing an inclusive program, utilizing existing best practices, and facilitating a seamless service delivery process.

More information on Massasoit’s MAICEI program will be coming soon. Please contact us with any questions!

Student Spotlight: Liam Higgins

Liam Higgins, from Braintree, MA, is in his second semester at Massasoit Community College participating in the MAICEI Program. He is a friendly person who is enthusiastic about his college experience. Liam has many interests. He loves sports and has a vast knowledge of facts and statistics about many teams and players. He enjoys playing baseball, soccer, tennis, and golf and is a big fan of Boston teams. Liam took a Word/Windows/Excel course during his first semester at MCC and is presently taking Spanish I. His professors report that he is an attentive student who works hard to participate in class and complete expected work. Liam is uncertain what type of job he would like to have and is open to exploring new and different types of work. He has an internship in the MCC Copy Center where he assists the director with loading paper into the machines, making packets for different people or groups on campus, and delivering materials to various offices. The director finds Liam to be dependable and very pleasant to work with. We anticipate Liam returning to MCC next year in the MAICEI program. This will enable him to continue his self-exploration academically, socially, and vocationally to help him determine the direction he would like to take in these areas in the future.
