Annual UTRGV Accessibility Achievement Award

The Accessibility Achievement Award is an annual celebration of individuals who support and contribute to access for students with disabilities at the University of Texas Rio Grande Valley. Student Accessibility Services alone does not make the university accessible to students. We rely on every member of the multi-campus community.
