Since then, PISYE has grown and become stronger each year. At present, the inclusion program is part of the Education Department of UDEM’s Education and Humanities Division.

Students will have developed knowledge about themselves, society, and the reality surrounding them.
Their new attitudes and values will enable them to have greater decision-making abilities, leading their self-esteem to grow and giving them more self-security, thus allowing them to gain the skills necessary to express themselves and integrate into a productive and happy life.
Our students develop intellectually through different classes designed according to a special psycho-pedagogical model, aiming to make the students independent and self-assured of their knowledge and skills.
Social education and integration
A series of classes and activities in which our students interact with undergraduate students and experience university life. They develop their sense of belonging and interaction with the society around them.
Our students will be part of a microenterprise where they will learn to produce and market various products. They can also be part of projects in administrative offices, aiming to join the general world of work upon their graduation.
Creative, artistic, and sports
Activities aimed to help our students to develop their physical and artistic skills and to learn to manage their emotions and behavior in groups.
