Annual Equal Opportunity/Affirmative Action
& Diversity Awards, Campuswide Recipients
A true champion of diversity, Christine Bagwell, associate director of Academic
Computing and Media Services and manager of the Instructional Web Development
Center, diligently works to ensure that people with disabilities can easily access
electronic information at UCSD. Her gentle but persuasive approach makes it difficult for
people to deny requests to make computer labs, web pages, and other media accessible
for students, faculty, and staff with disabilities.
One of Christine's many strengths is building relationships. Christine serves as chair of
the University's Systemwide Electronic Accessibility Leadership Team and as a member
of the Campus Diversity Council's Committee on Inclusion of Disability. Her knowledge of
the subject as well as the players allow Christine to connect individuals in need with
those who can make things happen. When called upon, Christine encourages people to
identify possible solutions and to work collaboratively to implement viable approaches.
She often proposes creative, new ideas with sound judgment which gives colleagues
confidence that supporting Christine will enhance the diversity of our community.
