The Mason LIFE Program is an innovative post-secondary program for young adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities who desire a university experience in a supportive academic environment.
Please note: Any visitor or guest to the Mason LIFE program will need to check in with the Office Manager at Krug Hall, Rm 110. All guests must follow all COVID protocol: Wear face coverings; observe physical-distancing rules; follow hygiene rules; take return to campus training; and complete your daily status check with Mason Daily COVID Health Check. All university protocols may be found here.
The mission of the Mason LIFE Program is dual purpose. The first part of the program’s mission is to educate students with IDD through programming in academics, employment, residential living, and community involvement, as these areas foster the inclusion of Mason LIFE students in all aspects of the university. The second part of the program’s mission is to provide opportunities for other Mason students to work directly with individuals with IDD. As a top tier research university, we embed research into many aspects of the program. This experience of learning, working, and living together mutually benefits all students and is the basis of the Mason LIFE program.
