Empirical evidence on practices of inclusive education has long saturated the literature to date. However, little attention is directed at portraying the enactment of inclusive education from policy-making perspectives during the COVID-19 pandemic. To fill such a void, this paper, situated within an Indonesian higher education context, reports on a case study that attempts to explore (1) gifted student’s characteristics in the inclusive education, (2) the student’s sustained participation in the program, and (3) the barriers encountered during the inclusive education implementation. Data in this study were generated through in-depth interviews with a single gifted student. The study’s findings suggest that the participant experienced well-attained prior learning in the schooling sector in his senior high school and enacted agency in the university’s learning through active participation in the teaching assistantship and internship programs for Merdeka Belajar Kampus Merdeka (MBKM) policy implementation. Despite these, undervaluing views from society is also seen in the interview. The study calls for stakeholders to construe gifted students’ learning characteristics, accommodate the students’ participation, and provide treatment on how society could appreciate such students’ academic excellence regardless of their special needs. Future research should also continue this scholarship using ethnography design in different educational settings.
