What is THRIVE?

Across the nation, hundreds of individuals with autism spectrum disorders (ASD) are applying and enrolling in institutions of higher education. The THRIVE Program at the University of North Florida (UNF), created and developed by dedicated staff within Student Accessibility Services (SAS) and the College of Education and Human Services (COEHS), is proud to serve students with ASD as they transition to and experience life at UNF.

 The Transition to Healthiness, Resourcefulness, Independence, Vocation, and Education (THRIVE) program was first developed in 2012, under the direct guidance of the former DRC director with the help of three UNF students. THRIVE supports students with ASD at UNF throughout college to ensure their experience is both successful and fulfilling. THRIVE believes that these basic supplemental services should be provided to students at no additional cost, and is free to all eligible students.
