Creative Opportunity


Below is a very cool opportunity to highlight what you are doing while in TOPS! (Alumni, you count too!) Staff can support you if you wish to participate.


We are writing a book and creating a website about students’ experiences in inclusive higher education programs.


You can send us different types of work including photos, videos, poems, essays, blogs, art, and more!


The book will be published by the University of Minnesota Press. There will also be a website that will feature the work of the student authors.


You can create something that tells about your college experience and send it to us to consider. 

If you have any questions or are interested, let us know! 

You can send us an email (

If your work is too big to send in an email, that’s ok! We will give you a special link so you can put it somewhere we can see it.


We can’t wait to see your work!
