In Spring 2018 we received 55 nominations for Appreciation Awards! We are glad so many SSD students had great experiences with faculty and staff in the fall semester and took the time to send in their nominations. The full list of nominees is available in PDF form at the following link Clock Award List Spring 2018 . The full list of past nominees is available on the SSD Appreciation Award page of our website.
Here are some excerpts from students’ nominations:
“Wonderful instructor, he has always made sure SSD students had the proper tools to succeed.”
“She has been very understanding this entire semester and helped me through this entire journey. This is my first semester knowing of my disability and having accommodations and she went above and beyond to help me out in and out of the classroom.”
“Sometimes disability causes me to question my intelligence. Thank you for affirming my academic pursuits, complementing me, and encouraging me to persevere.”
“She always made sure I get to utilize my accommodation and encouraged me to talk to her if I encounter any problems. Even before I ask and remind her to send exams to SSD for testings, she took initiatives herself to send them”
We appreciate all the faculty and staff who make campus more accessible, inclusive and welcoming for students with a disability!
