Student Accessibility Services Awards

Student Accessibility Services (SAS, formerly SEAS) has four annual awards that recognize faculty, staff and students who exemplify the best in enhancing accessibility at Brown. We are seeking input from Campus Life staff on two of the awards which recognize staff and faculty.

  • The SAS Sarah Volante Facilitator Award is given annually to a Brown University administrator or staff who has demonstrated exceptional awareness, inclusiveness, and support for students with disabilities.
  • The SAS Access Ambassador Award is given annually to a Brown University faculty who has demonstrated exceptional awareness, inclusiveness, and support for students with disabilities.
  • Two other awards recognize students registered with SAS. One, the SAS Catherine J. Axe Advocacy Award, focuses on advocacy for oneself or others. The other, the SAS Odyssey Award, recognizes a student who has taken a longer than typical path toward graduation but has persisted. The student awards are nominated by SAS staff.

We welcome staff nominations for the Ambassador and Facilitator awards. Please add a sentence or two about your nominee and the work they are doing in support of accessibility at Brown. If you would like to nominate a faculty or staff please reach out to [email protected] by Friday, May 8, 2020
