Special Olympics College

Create A Community of Acceptance and Respect on Your Campus

Special Olympics College Clubs function as official clubs on campus and connects college students and individuals with intellectual disabilities through sport to build friendships and help lead the social justice movement of Special Olympics.

Together these components can help students work for and with Special Olympics athletes to help transform school campuses into communities of acceptance and respect.
