The UNH Alumni Association presented Jan Nisbet with its most prestigious award during an afternoon ceremony in the Dimond Library last week.

Established by the association in 1940 and named for Charles Holmes Pettee, the Pettee Medal recognizes extraordinary achievement and distinguished service to the state, the nation, and the world.

Nisbet is the director of the UNH Institute on Disability. She was honored for her commitment, achievement and leadership in the field of disability services. The Institute on Disability’s projects span an immense spectrum, from autism to inclusive education, community living for adults to technology, health care and public policy to leadership training. Under Nisbet’s guidance, the institute has set as its vision a world where all people, including those living with disabilities, are fully engaged members of their communities and where support is available to help individuals and families achieve independence, productivity and a satisfying quality of life.
