Nominations sought for those who champion disability issues
Nominations are now being sought for the 28th annual James T. Neubacher Award.
The award is presented to a faculty or staff member, student, or alumna/alumnus for significant achievements in promoting acceptance and awareness of people with disabilities, advocating for the civil rights of people with disabilities, or removing barriers to full participation in programs and services for people with disabilities.
The award includes a stipend provided by the Office of the President and is sponsored by the Office of Institutional Equity, University Human Resources, Michigan Medicine, the U-M Council for Disability Concerns and the Office of the President.
Established by the U-M Council for Disability Concerns in October 1990, the award serves a memorial to James T. Neubacher, an alumnus of the university. Neubacher was also a columnist for the Detroit Free Press and an advocate for equal rights and opportunities for people with disabilities.
The award will be presented during Investing in Ability events in October.
The deadline for nomination submissions is June 9.
