Dr. Henry Giroux has been named this year’s recipient of three major awards by the College of Educational Studies at Chapman University.
He has been honoured with the Changing the World Award, the Paulo Friere Democratic Project Social Justice Award and an honorary Doctorate of Humane Letters. This is an outstanding achievement as no individual has won all three awards.
The Changing the World Award recognizes “individuals who contribute in remarkable ways to the improvement of our world through education.” The Paulo Freire Democratic Project Social Justice Award is “devoted to the development of progressive/critical and ethical/democratic practices within both formal and informal education settings.” The honorary Doctorate of Humane Letters degree awards “individuals who have distinguished themselves as pioneers in academia, community service, business and industry, or the arts; and whose contributions and accomplishments exemplify the ideals expressed by the mission of our academic community: to provide personalized education of distinction that leads to inquiring, ethical and productive lives as global citizens.”
Henry Giroux is the McMaster University Chair for Scholarship in the Public Interest and teaches ARTSSCI 4CB3 / Inquiry into Education.
