Transition to Health, Resources, Independent living, Viable careers, and Education (THRIVE) is a support program on campus for degree–seeking students with autism spectrum disorder (ASD). This project assembles a diverse team of students, faculty and staff who will use video storytelling, as well as other digital methods and tools, to build a multi–media, interactive online experience that explores the lives of students with ASD at UNF. We seek to make visible the academic and social challenges that these students face, from their own viewpoint. In the process, we aim to celebrate the diverse talents and perspectives they bring to our campus.
