As part of Disability Awareness Month, The Ohio State University Office for Disability Services distributes awards that recognize faculty and staff who have made Ohio State a better place for students with disabilities. Dr. Susan Saltzburg (left) and Dr. Tamara Davis both received a 2010 Access Award and were nominated by a student who was personally affected by their outreach. They received their awards at a recognition reception and thanked publicly for their efforts. Only 14 faculty across the entire university were recognized.
