In Fall 2019 we received 48 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: Appreciation Award List Fall 2019. The full list of past nominees is available on the SSD Appreciation Award page of our website.
Here are some excerpts from students’ nominations:
“He was very welcoming. He is understanding and helps try to make all students included in the classroom. He believed in all of his students’ ability to succeed in the classroom. His class was worthwhile and there was a lot to learn.”
“She was very receptive. She offered assistance when needed. She is very open to diversity and works to make sure that all students are included. She is passionate about the topic and tries to make a connection to content addressed. She makes a personal connection to each of her students.”
“She was the first person I met at UT, and I will never forget her kindness. Even as a prospective student, she always worked to make sure I had the accommodations I needed. She went above and beyond to help me transition from an admitted student to my first day of campus… and I am so thankful!”
“[My professor] was extremely receptive to my SSD needs. She did not hesitate in helping me with test accommodations and was very kind and understanding on helping me meet my needs. I hope everyone who needs accommodations can have a [professor like this] in their life!”
We appreciate all our faculty and staff who make UT more accessible, inclusive and welcoming for students with disabilities!
