Wendy Wilson wins the Sylvia Wallace Sessional Lecturer Award
Women’s and Gender Studies and Sociology are pleased to announce that Wendy Wilson has won the Gwenna Moss Sylvia Wallace Sessional Lecturer Award. The nomination, prepared by Marie Lovrod, WGST Coordinator, and Carolyn Brooks, Assistant Professor of Sociology, almost wrote itself; colleagues from both units were more than happy to contribute glowing letters in support of the nomination. Comments from student evaluations added substantial evidence affirming Wendy’s contributions as a superior and committed teacher serving both Women’s and Gender Studies and Sociology students for almost twenty years.
Generous and engaging, Wendy has a strong reputation for providing an exceptional learning experience for her students. Student evaluations emphasize her caring investment in their development and well-being, her inspirational teaching methods and her scintillating classroom presence. “Wendy for Prime Minister!” was one of our favorites.
Wendy is that rare individual who can combine tough analytical skill development with both humor and sensitivity. Keeping her classroom ever current and on the cutting edge of the field, Wendy has contributed to the achievements of a substantial proportion of the students who have taken Women’s and Gender Studies and Sociology courses over the years. Her colleagues in Women’s and Gender Studies and Sociology, her students, family and friends all appreciate the ways Wendy has invested the prime of her life’s energy into the continued success of the University of Saskatchewan.
Please join us all in congratulating Wendy on this richly deserved recognition of her role as a stalwart member of our academic community!
