Special educator receives national honor for service


Chuck Salzberg 
Dr. Chuck Salzberg has spent his career building the field of special education, influencing policy and serving on national boards. But his greatest love is mentoring graduate students.
It’s fitting, then, that he received the Distinguished Service Award from the Teacher Education Division of the Council for Exceptional Children earlier this month.
It’s also no surprise to those he has mentored along the way. When they talk about Salzberg, the same words come up again and again: amazing, dedicated, personable. “I’ve watched him as an example of how to get things done,” said Dr. Belva Collins, the Special Education department chair in the University of North Carolina at Charlotte.
The award recognizes Salzberg’s leadership in special education. He has been an educator, a department head at two universities and the president of two national-level organizations. “His ability to frame issues and questions and his ability to design programs is really amazing,” said Dr. David Forbush, associate director for the Center for Technical Assistance for Excellence inSpecial Education within the Emma Eccles Jones College of Education and Human Services at Utah State University.
