The McBurney Center Access Awards recognize UW–Madison faculty and staff dedicated to building an inclusive educational community. For 2021, the McBurney Center recognized eight staff and faculty members to celebrate their efforts in creating an inclusive educational experience for all students. 

“During a semester that was increasingly stressful due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Clare Haden stepped up to support her students with kindness and flexibility,” explains a news post about the awards. 

“Haden met on a weekly basis with a struggling student throughout the fall semester. She assisted the student through her assignments and was providing support beyond what is required. She offered flexibility with all due dates and would respond extremely quickly when students reached out to communicate need or confusion,” the post adds.   

“Clare Haden is a wonderful campus partner and instructor,” remarks Access Consultant Jessie Kourliouros.
