“Attending USF's School of Education special education program was a life-changing and extremely challenging experience. As an older adult returning to school, I felt the faculty was extremely supportive. The connection a student makes to USF continues long after graduation, and throughout your career.” - Julie Tucker, Special Education Program Alumna
