In response to the issue of low retention rates among an increasingly diverse student population, the ACCESS project at Colorado State University focuses on a twofold strategy:

  1. inclusive, accessible teaching practices centered on the principles of Universal Design for Learning (UDL)
  2. student self-advocacy

This program spotlights the latter-provision of opportunities for students to gain the knowledge, skills and tools needed to become fully engaged self-directed students who successfully navigate their academic experience.
