This presentation, Teaming for TIDES, aligns with the TASH 2016 theme, "Gateway to Equity". The TIDES program is a collaborative partnership between a community-based transition center and the local university. Pre-service special educators peer mentor local transition students in both academic and non-academic inclusive campus activities. The TIDES program has resulted in a variety of social and academic benefits (Jones & Goble, 2012) for the students, families and greater community. This presentation highlights the initial development, implementation and assessment of the first year of the TIDES program. After this session, participants will be able to: a) Discuss benefits of an inclusive campus experience for students with and without disabilities; b) Explain why pre-service special education teachers should have authentic transition program experience; c) Discuss the issues involved with developing a campus-based transition program.
