The Learning Independence for Empowerment (LIFE) Project, developed in 2009, is a program for students with an autism spectrum disorder (ASD), Asperger Syndrome, or other social-cognitive deficit. Within this program, students participate in workshops, presentations, and projects as well as participate in interactive games and socialize. LIFE Project is run by the Autism Services Coordinator with the Bob Murphy Access Center (BMAC) and other experienced professionals.

During the LIFE Project meetings, students work on social interactions, time management, and fine tune self-governing abilities to navigate the campus more efficiently as well as learn skills needed for careers. The program promotes independence and autonomy through social interactions, coaching, and role-play. There is no fee for students to participate in this program.
