Thanks to its extensive mentoring programs, the UW’s Disabilities, Opportunities, Internetworking and Technology (DO-IT) Center was named among this year’s recipients of the prestigious Susan M. Daniels Mentoring Hall of Fame award by the National Disability Mentoring Coalition. “We are honored to be inducted into the Hall of Fame,” said Sheryl Burgstahler, who founded and directs DO-IT. “Individuals with disabilities make our communities more vibrant, diverse and inclusive. We share this award with the mentors in our programs who serve as advocates, guides and role models for others.”
