Strache Leadership Award Nominations

The CSUN Assistive Technology Conference is Now Accepting Nominations!

The Strache Leadership Award was established and first presented in 1988 to Dr. Fred Strache. The award acknowledges the leadership of the recipient in the field of disability and technology. Specifically, the award acknowledges that the recipient continues to educate, to work with students as an educator and as a mentor, while remaining a leader in their respective field through publications, presentations and research.

Dr. Fred Strache, who from CSUN in 2001, had held many positions, including Vice President for student affairs. He was a very active and progressive administrator, but his primary emphasis was always on students. Regardless of the type of project discussed with him, he would be supportive, but always ask what the benefits to our students would be.

If you know a colleague who qualifies to be recognized for their contributions and receive the Strache Leadership Award, please provide CSUN’s Center on Disabilities with the candidate’s name and a brief statement that demonstrates the justification for the nomination.

Please submit your nomination via email no later than Tuesday, October 18, 2022.

The award is presented at the Keynote Address held on Tuesday morning at the CSUN Assistive Technology Conference.
