The Excel Alumni Program was established to sustain and enhance the gains of the Excel Program at Georgia Tech. The goal is for alumni of the Excel Program to maintain their social networks, career development, health, and independent living skills while continuing to grow in all of the dimensions of their life.
The program provides both in-person and virtual events to serve our graduates as they disperse across the nation and world while building community. The Excel Alumni Program values the relationships adults with intellectual disabilities gain in an inclusive environment and promotes continued inclusion through inviting alumni mentors and community partners to participate in events and contribute to the program.
The Excel Program offered by the Georgia Institute of Technology is a four-year college program for students with intellectual and developmental disabilities (I/DD) leading to two separate certificates. Excel provides a structured, supportive, and inclusive postsecondary educational opportunity and addresses the full scope of the needs of this population from fundamental academics to social activities and vocational preparation. The program activities are categorized into one or more categories: academics, social fluency, independent living, career exploration, and leadership development.
