March 7, 2011 by cpehrson

Dr. Judith Holt, CPD’s Interdisciplinary Training Division director,  has been recognized by her colleagues at Utah State University with the 2011 Strong Human Service Award.

This Award was established by the former Dean of the Emma Eccles College of Education and Human Services, Dr. Carol Strong, as a means of recognizing outstanding achievements and contributions to the field of human services.

The Award honors a CEHS faculty member for significant and sustained leadership in human services, applying research to improve the lives of children or adults.  It also recognizes cross-college and interdisciplinary efforts.

For the past decade, Dr. Holt has been the Co-Director for the Utah Regional Leadership Education in Neurodevelopmental Disabilities (URLEND), and is the Director of the Interdisciplinary Disability Awareness and Service Learning Project (IDASL). Dr. Holt is the Principle Investigator and Project Director for a variety of additional projects at the CPD that involve designing, implementing, and evaluating supports and services for children, youth, and adults with disabilities and their families.

The Strong Human Services Award follows on the heels of the Life Time Service Award that Dr. Holt was honored with at the Brain Injury Association of Utah’s Annual Conference in October of last year.
