I completed a mid-career PhD in Sociology after several decades of community development and consulting work in Ontario and Prince Edward Island. I teach in the social justice stream of Sociology and use my background to provide my students with opportunities to engage with community organizations and social justice issues.

How are you currently involved in community-campus partnerships for teaching, research or otherwise?

I teach a 4th year course called Community Engaged Sociology where students work with community organizations.

In my social justice course, students complete an assignment where they attend a social justice event in the community and then take an action using social media on the issue they learned about.

Department: Sociology and Anthropology

Area of study: Social justice and gender
