Margaret Price, associate professor of English and disability studies and director of the Disability Studies Program, is one of 25 individuals and four organizations that have been inducted into the Susan M. Daniels Disability Mentoring Hall of Fame, organized by the National Disability Mentoring Coalition. The honorees  —  nominated by their mentees  —  were selected based on their dedication to mentoring and their impact on the lives of youth and adults with disabilities. Price is co-author of a new study, “Disclosure of Mental Disability by College and University Faculty: The Negotiation of Accommodations, Supports and Barriers,” a first-ever cross-institutional study of its kind that seeks to fill a major gap in the research on faculty members with disabilities. She also is author of the book, Mad at School: Rhetorics of Mental Disability and Academic Life (University of Michigan Press, 2011).
