College for California Students with Intellectual Disabilities
The Redwood SEED Scholars Program in a Nutshell
The Redwood SEED Scholars Program (Supported Education to Elevate Diversity) at the University of California, Davis is designed for students in California with intellectual disabilities.
The UC Davis Redwood SEED Scholars are welcomed to UC Davis as full-time NON-DEGREE students, and supported with peer mentors in academics, social inclusion, health and wellness, residential living and employment. Redwood Seed Scholars take part in internships both on and off campus with the goal of competitive, integrated employment. They live alongside other UC Davis students in on-campus housing and participate in campus clubs and organizations. Self-determination and choice will be the seeds we plant at the beginning of the program and what will guide us for the full four years.
The program is a collaboration between the UC Davis MIND Institute, the Office of the Vice Chancellor of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion, and the Division of Continuing and Professional Education.
