Edgewood College students discover what they are passionate about—in a place where they can make a difference in the world around them. What will be your Edgewood College story?
The Cutting Edge Program
The Cutting Edge Program at Edgewood College was piloted in 2007. It was the first program at a four-year college in Wisconsin to offer a fully inclusive college experience for individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities. Since its inception, the program has continued to grow and offers individualized wrap-around services to support students in academics, student housing, social experiences, and practicums/internships. We currently support 20 students per academic year. Due to the success of the program and overwhelming support, we have now expanded and are offering two additional programs: Pre-College and Alumni Program. As part of Edgewood College’s Dominican tradition, students learn the values of justice, compassion, truth, community, and partnership. Through these values, students are given the opportunity to experience civic engagement both on campus and in the Madison community.
