Dr. Alana Butler Receives Queen’s Human Rights Initiative Award

March 27, 2019

On March 19, Dr. Alana Butler was given the Queen’s Human Rights Initiative Award. The Queen’s Human Rights Initiative Award recognizes initiatives that have made an outstanding contribution to the advancement of equality and human rights at Queen’s University. 

Dr. Butler has been instrumental in establishing the Teacher Candidates of Colour group by providing a welcoming and supportive community while at the same time positively changing the culture within the Faculty of Education for current and future teacher candidates. Teacher Candidates of Colour enables students to bring their knowledge and experience to the community and in the group’s ever growing membership, it’s evident they have the support to thrive. Through Dr. Butler’s efforts and the work done by students, the Social Healing and Reconciliatory Education (SHARE) research group was created.
