Student Self-Advocacy


Self-Advocacy (SA) skills are key to students’ college and life success. Through self-advocacy skill development, students learn life‑long strategies to help them take charge of their lives and maximize their strengths. When applied in the context of universally-designed instruction, self-advocacy skills may improve student persistence, retention and degree attainment.
