As part of UNT’s Salute to Faculty Excellence Week, Linda Holloway, Ph.D., CRC, chair of PACS' Disability and Addiction Rehabilitation department, received the UNT Community Award for her outstanding service to the university community. The award recognizes faculty who give time and concern to individual or groups of students, gives assistance consistently to other faculty and staff and other involvement in the university community.
Holloway’s passion is ensuring that everyone has the right to achieve their life goals. A part of this is helping to overcome the stigma and prejudice that many individuals with disabilities face - particularly those with "hidden" disabilities such as autism spectrum, mental health, and substance use disorders. She loves working with students to translate research to practice by giving them an opportunity to use their knowledge and skills to facilitate this growth.
