The Outstanding Professor Award is awarded annually by the Faculty of Arts to a Professor who has demonstrated outstanding teaching, excellence in research, and who has an exemplary record of service. The award is given for a significant and sustained record of teaching, service and research within the University community and beyond. This year’s winner, Dr. David Churchill, Professor of History, is an excellent example in all these areas. In his research, he has examined the ways in which members of marginalized groups work together to defend and maintain their rights. His research has been supported by SSHRC and other funding agencies. He has held the Rockefeller Humanities Research Fellowship at Columbia University, and has been instrumental in the co-founding of the Interdisciplinary Research Circle on Globalization and Cosmopolitanism. Dr. Churchill is the co-editor of two books and the author of more than a dozen articles or book chapters. He served as the Director of the University of Manitoba Institute for the Humanities during which time he oversaw the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Two-Spirit, and Queer (LGBTTQ) Archival and Oral History Initiative. Dr. Churchill has an equally distinguished reputation in the classroom having taught undergraduate and graduate courses and supervised M.A. and PhD students. Dr Churchill presents a shining example of an outstanding professor truly meriting his award of The Outstanding Professor Award.
