“My support of the Adaptive Technology Centre makes a real difference to students with disabilities, helping them make the most of their time at Queen’s. Having observed my father’s struggle with ALS, I appreciate how new and evolving technologies and assistive devices can enable and empower people who might not otherwise have had the opportunity to participate in our community. My gift is also a small tribute to the three amazing people who work together in the Centre to provide a remarkable range of technologies and services, tailored to the individual needs of hundreds of students each year."

“We can be the catalyst for the kinds of changes we would like to see in our classrooms, our research labs and across campus. For example, my donations to the department over the past few years have been in support of undergraduate assistantships in two critical directions: remedial work and enrichment. That provides a win for everyone: the students who get the assistance, the assistant who has the sense of doing significant work for the department, and the course instructor. What changes would you like to enable?”
