Every year, the Center for Disability Resources (CDR) recognizes faculty and staff members who are nominated for their work in advocating for students and supporting the center in its mission to empower students, enhance equity, and provide a platform for innovation and inclusion.

In a year of a pandemic that created challenges for access, the center received 67 nominations—the highest ever—from students who wanted to acknowledge the faculty or staff member who made a difference in their academic lives.

Among the honorees are:

  • Professor Richard Risman, nominated for ensuring all students have the tools and skills needed to succeed and encouraging students through his actions and words.
  • Joel Whitney, Director of Information Technology, nominated for his willingness to work with students with accommodation needs at all hours.
