Michele Miyamoto - Outstanding Staff 2016-2017

Michele Miyamoto
Tutorial Coordinator, Learning Center

Kevin O'Brien presenting Michele Miyamoto with SDRC Recognition AwardSDRC is delighted to honor Michele Miyamoto for outstanding service to students with disabilities.

As coordinator of the Tutorial Center, Michele is responsible for hiring and training student tutors.  She is conscious of the challenges faced by students with disabilities, and incorporates principles of accessibility into every aspect of the Tutorial Center.

In designing trainings, Michele ensures that her tutors have familiarity with disability issues. She invites SDRC staff to present in her trainings and encourages tutors to consult with us when challenging disability-related situations come up.

SDRC access advisors regularly consult with Michele about our students who may have more individualized needs. She knows the resources of her office and the campus and is always willing to help in creatively providing access and thinking “outside the box” when appropriate.

At SDRC, we consider the Tutorial Center one of the most valuable resources on our campus for students with disabilities, and Michele’s leadership is a big part of that.

Thank you, Michele, for your outstanding service in promoting the success of students with disabilities through tutorial services!
