Disability Resource Centre presents I’m Accessible award to Barber School professors
Two professors from the Irving K. Barber School of Arts and Sciences were honoured by the Disability Resource Centre (DRC) this week for their active approaches to academic support for students with disabilities.
The awards were presented in the DRC on June 4 in a recognition ceremony that featured the award winners and their nominators.
Mary Stockdale, adjunct professor of geography, was nominated by student Meghan Currie for her ability to discuss and utilize non-judgemental and non-traditional approaches to learning in the classroom.
Trudy Kavanagh, assistant professor of geography, was nominated by student Robyn Weninger for the proactive and thoughtful gestures made while Weninger was in Kavanagh’s course — bringing an engaging learning environment for students of all capacities.
Kavanagh is also a member of the Faculty Disability Liaison Network, a forum for discussing policy, process and accessibility issues on campus. If you are interested in joining the Network, please contact Jess Roebuck, DRC Coordinator directly.
Also, Roebuck’s office has moved to UNC227A. The DRC will also be relocated to UNC227 by September 2012.
