This Award is presented by the Multicultural Council to an Association member or group in recognition of exhibited leadership and commitment to advancing programs and practices aimed toward increasing the diversity, cultural, and/or linguistic competencies within a Center and the Network as a whole, and for significant contributions to further the cause of understanding the diverse needs of families seeking disability services.
University of Arizona Sonoran UCEDD, Disability and Border Communities Workgroup
In Appreciation of Your Ongoing Leadership and Dedication to Diversity and Cultural and Linguistic Competence
"The workgroup has allowed the UCEDD opportunities to forge strong and lasting relationships for ongoing work with groups in the border communities as well as opportunities for university students to learn about these communities. They are to be commended for their efforts to give a voice to Hispanic families and individuals with DD in a state climate which is less than hospitable to this population."
