The award, worth $1,000, is given to a faculty member for research, travel, or activities related to professional development.
Dr. Andrew Woolford, Professor, Department of Sociology
Andrew Woolford is the recipient of the Faculty of Arts Award in Internationalization for 2017 for his impressive contributions to internationalization—from the classroom to the University, national, and global communities.
Dr. Woolford works to increase his students’ awareness of international cultures, perspectives, and issues. The terms of the award emphasize that nominees should contribute to such an increase in awareness through courses that integrate international experience, or through the inclusion of teaching materials based on research in other countries, or by facilitating international student exchanges - Dr Woolford is active in all three areas.
Dr. Woolford is a leading researcher in the field of international genocide studies who clearly translates his important findings and the high level conversations he is engaged in as a scholar to the classroom for the benefit of students. His reputation as a researcher on critical questions of international importance is signalled by his presidency of the International Association of Genocide Scholars, his involvement in drafting resolutions for the United Nations, many fellowships and awards, including his Tourism Winnipeg Bringing It Home Award, and his membership in the College of New Scholars of the Royal Society of Canada.
