President's Council on Accessibility Awards

These awards are not offered through the FCTL, however, we value our partnerships, both inside and outside the university and support faculty in inclusive teaching practices that strengthen a sense of belonging and help students thrive in an increasingly diverse world.  The FCTL partners with the President's Council on Accessibility and would like to recognize and celebrate the teaching achievements of these faculty.
