Mira Sucharov, Associate Professor of Political Science at Carleton University, has been named one of Ontario’s most outstanding university teachers by the Ontario Confederation of University Faculty Associations (OCUFA). Professor Sucharov will receive a 2016-2017 OCUFA Teaching Award at an October 21, 2017 ceremony in Toronto, hosted by CBC personality Paul Kennedy.
“Professor Sucharov’s courses demonstrate a level of experimentation and risk-taking not always common in the study of political science,” said Professor Judy Bornais, Chair of OCUFA’s Award Committee. “Her teaching style, imbued with openness and empathy, is laudable. It is clear through students’ testimonies that they hold her and her courses in high regard.”
