Hitchcock Receives 2018 Paul Winske Access Award from Stavros

By Jessica Schultz

On October 25, 2018, the Hitchcock Center was pleased to be honored with the Stavros’ Paul Winske Access Award for our efforts to design accessibility, in all its forms, into our building design, programming and daily operations.

It is a given that when we began construction of our new building 2015, we would be required to meet the physical accessibility requirements of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). Although there have been many clarifications on the interpretation of the law, as well as a reauthorization of the act, the Hitchcock Center knew it needed to go beyond the ADA by valuing inclusive thinking.

The Hitchcock Center is committed to providing equitable learning experiences for all people. In what ways is the Hitchcock Center accessible and inclusive?

The Hitchcock Center is continually assessing programs and facility for access-oriented inclusion, breaking down barriers and advocating for access wherever possible. You can find a link to all 2018 Stavros’ award recipients here.
