Our Mission and Vision

The Maryland Coalition for Inclusive Education, Inc. (MCIE) is a nonprofit organization dedicated to advancing the success of all children and youth in their school communities. Our mission is to be the catalyst for the meaningful and successful inclusion of all students in their neighborhood schools.

MCIE has a vision of a society where neighborhood schools welcome all students, engage them in learning, and form the foundation for inclusive communities. We envision that in neighborhood schools, students with and without disabilities will benefit from meaningful instruction, have friends, and be full members of their school communities.

Our Services

Founded in 1988, MCIE's initial efforts were focused on community organizing and administrative advocacy. As we've grown, so have our services and expertise. Today, MCIE successfully promotes effective and inclusive education practices in Maryland, across the United States and internationally! We develop partnerships with school districts and state agencies; and we collaborate with universities, advocacy agencies, professional organizations, and a variety of disability groups. We assist schools in their work to improve instruction and social/behavioral supports, and we share current information on evidence-based educational practices. Through our customized services, we provide solutions for inclusive education at the system, school and student level.
