CERLAC Fellow Andrea Davis awarded prestigious 3-M National Teaching Fellowship

Central to Professor Andrea Davis’ transformational work as a teacher and academic is the belief that “racism is a refusal to really learn,” and the philosophy of “teaching as activism.” Her 20-year career embodies both and, now, she has been recognized with Canada’s most prestigious award for teaching, leadership and innovation.

Davis, an associate professor of humanities in the Faculty of Liberal Arts & Professional Studies (LA&PS) and special advisor on LA&PS’ Anti-Black Racism Strategy, is one of the 10 recipients of a 2021 3M National Teaching Fellowship. The fellowships were created in 1986 by the Society of Teaching and Learning in Higher Education to recognize “educators who show leadership in enhancing post-secondary education and a sustained dedication to undergraduate education.”
