Services for Students with Disabilities, with the support of Sally Bohland and the Office of Diversity and Inclusion, annually host the Excellence in Access and Inclusion Awards. This year, the awards ceremony will be held on Tuesday, April 23, 2019 from 8am-10am in the Old Dominion Ballroom of the Squires Student Center.
