Awards and Appreciation Reception

"... an eye-opening experience that will leave an indelible mark on your own sense of achievement." -Director Michael Hudson


Each year the Resource Center for Persons with Disabilities hosts an annual awards and appreciation reception at the end of the spring semester to honor the outstanding achievements of scholarship recipients, exceptional faculty and staff, and generous donors supporting the RCPD mission. Attendees will witness a unique, positive, and inspiring celebration of ability and accomplishment.

A large room filled with people at tables waiting for the reception to begin.



Date: Friday, April 3, 2020

1:00 - 3:00 pm

Location: The Union Ballroom, Michigan State University



The Awards and Appreciation Reception is sponsored by the MSU Federal Credit Union (title sponsor) and Good Fruit Video (video sponsor) and we thank them for their support of this signature program!
