Helen provides critically important support to individual students and is an invaluable and trusted resource for members of faculty seeking guidance on a broad range of disability and equity-related matters. The Faculty's Equity Program has flourished under Helen's leadership and she manages this with professionalism, good judgement, integrity and warmth. Faculty, staff and students genuinely enjoy working with her and many students over the years have candidly remarked that they would not have been able to finish law school without Helen's support.

Michele has served as Coordinator of Library Services for Students with Disabilities and the Adaptive Technology Centre for over 16 years. She is a tireless advocate and spokesperson for providing better services to students with disabilities, especially students with print disabilities. She goes to great lengths in tracking down and getting to materials in alternate formats, coordinating individuals and units towards this end.
