Jim Headlee, Associate Professor, Diesel Equipment Technology, College of Technology
Professor Headlee knows his students and is dedicated to their success. He works with the students on an individual basis and assists them with strategies for success. Jim is knowledgeable about student services on the Mountain Campus and often refers students for services not offered at the West COT campus.
Garry Kerr, Lecture, Department of Anthropology
Instructor Kerr is outstanding in his attentiveness to students with hearing impairments in his courses. He is committed to only showing media already captioned or with subtitles. During times when he was unable to access the subtitles during a class showing, even though the cover jacket had a close captioned version, he would not show the media that day. Instead he would postpone the viewing and with great determination, would make arrangements to have Information technology come to the Urey Lecture Hall to check the equipment and to be sure that the captioning/subtitles worked. Once he was made aware of the process of how to obtain captioned media, he went beyond what was reasonably expected to work with Information technology and the library to ensure captioned versions were available. If not, he chose not to view that media.
