Goal 2: UNT ELEVAR students will graduate with a UNT certificate advancing their independent living, social, health, and employment-related skills. Goal 3: UNT ELEVAR Transition Pathway students and their educators will participate in and complete the Transition Pathway program to increase their awareness of or teaching of independent living, pre-employment, and college success skills (e.g., UNT ELEVAR program).
