Remembering Dylan

Earlier this month, UCCS 2021 graduate Dylan Prosser passed away. Dylan enrolled at UCCS the minute his grandma learned about the Office of Inclusive Services because he wanted to study criminal justice, and that is exactly what he did. Dylan took every class he could related to criminal justice and did his internship with the El Paso County Police Department. Dylan's capstone was "Communication Between People with Disabilities and the Police Departments."

Dylan had a significant impact on his professors and fellow students; he will be deeply missed. In Dylan's memory, his family created the Dylan’s Journey Memorial Scholarship, a scholarship to be awarded annually to an individual with learning disabilities and/or Neurofibromatosis to pursue their college dreams. To contribute, please visit “Dylan’s Journey Memorial Scholarship” on IN! will be contributing $1,000 in Dylan's memory - as one of the first students to access inclusive services at UCCS, Dylan's legacy is large.

Community Presentations

Pursuring Film Studies
