New Time:

Mondays 1:30-2:30pm

Starting September 18, 2023

STRIVE How-To... is a 12-part virtual series guiding students with disabilities through key aspects of the learning experience. Think of it not as a rule book but as an invitation to get curious about who you are as a student, find out what sparks your creativity, and give yourself permission to not have all the answers when it comes to school. ('Cause we definitely don't, but we have a couple of tips we think you'd like!).

Get inspired to create a schedule that aligns with your goals as a student this semester.

We want you to know

Most STRIVE programming is hosted on Zoom. This virtual space will be similar to the in-person experience of STRIVE. That means other students will be able to view your name and video (optional), as well as hear your voice. We will not share any confidential information and what you choose to share with the group is up to you. To join our virtual programs you must be logged in to your TMU account.

If you have questions or require accommodations to participate in any STRIVE program, email
