A multitude of professors and faculty were awarded for their support of students with disabilities in the classroom and beyond.

The McBurney Disability Resource Center recognized nine faculty members last Thursday for their outstanding support of students with disabilities.

The Forward Access Award honored faculty members who showed extraordinary efforts in their student support both in and out of the classroom. These individuals were a crucial part of McBurney’s efforts in establishing inclusive classrooms. 

The McBurney Center’s mission statement emphasizes their reliance on students and faculty in making UW-Madison an inclusive and accessible environment. This award recognizes faculty members who did just that and more. 

“We wanted to take some time to recognize the good work people are doing, often without being asked to, because it’s just good practice,” said Mari Magler, Assistant Dean of the McBurney Center. 

This year’s recipients were Caelyn Randall, Professor Carrie Niziolek, Torie Utrie, Dr. Matt Bowman, Professor Tim Gattenby, Karla Weber, Heidi Johnson, Professor Brad Schenkel, Mike Kedzie, as well as the entire Letters and Science Undergraduate Academic Deans Service Team.
