History of the Dr. James Brace Excellence in Partnership Award
The award was established in 2017 to honor the revered associate dean of the College of Veterinary Medicine to recognize faculty, staff, and other members of the university community who excel in partnership with Student Disability Services. Dean Brace embodied partnership. He worked cooperatively with Student Disability Services and professors at the College of Veterinary Medicine to ensure that students received academic accommodations and enhanced access to course material. Dr. Brace retired in 2013 from the University of Tennessee after 35 years of service.

Last evening at the Student Disability Services Dinner and Induction Ceremony our own Dr. Jason L. Scott was named the 2022 recipient of the Dr. James Brace Excellence in Partnership Award. This award is given annually to a faculty, staff, students, and others in the university community member that work closely with Student Disability Services to provide equitable access to services. Dr. Scott’s work with building our adaptive sports initiative was highlighted. Please join us in congratulating Dr. Scott!
