|Disability Support Services names Access Champions|
Each year, Disability Support Services staff and students with disabilities recognize faculty and staff who have done an exceptional job of providing access in the classroom and on campus. The following were named access champions at the annual DSS awards reception: Forrest Ames (Mechanical Engineering), Loren Liepold (Theatre Arts), and Andrew Kvitek, Student and member of Pi Kappa Phi.
The criteria for receiving an Access Champion award are: providing accommodations in a fair and respectful way and holding students to the same academic standards as expected of all other students; maintaining a friendly, respectful and inclusive environment, using concepts of “universal design” to minimize the need for accommodations, or designing a creative way to provide access.
