Steve Cutway wins first-ever Queen's Accessibility Award
On Tuesday, June 10, Board of Trustees member Andrew Pipe (right) a former classmate of Steve Cutway, presented Mr. Cutway with the first-ever Queen's Accessibility Award in 202 Policy Studies.
The Award was established to recognize extraordinary efforts towards advancing accessibility for persons with disabilities by individuals and departments at Queen's. It was created by the Office of the University Advisor on Equity and AMS accessibility student group, Accessibility Queen's.
The Queen's Accessibility Committee, with support from Accessibility Queen's, voted unanimously in March to name the award in Mr. Cutway's honour.
Mr. Cutway, an employee of Queen's for 34 years, made significant contributions to accessibility by solving access barriers with unique creativity, while supporting and encouraging students with disabilities. Mr. Cutway went well beyond the expectations of his job to help remove barriers to participation for many students with disabilities at Queen's. He also played a critical role in the University's accessibility planning in ensuring that all accessibility needs are considered.
