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.

There are those moments in life that just give you goosebumps – that sensation that you’ve experienced something incredible, and your life will never be the same from that point on.

ConEd Student Helps Kids Feel the Music

February 20, 2019

Katie Mulvihill is a 2nd year concurrent education student at Queen’s.  A Kingstonian and an environmental and health studies major, she was drawn to a non traditional classroom setting practicum with Sistema Kingston for the opportunity to “make connections with kids and help create new experiences for them.”

Katie spent the last 12 summers at a camp close to Kingston. She found counselling kids and running programs as something that has shaped her as a person. She brings her passion for the outdoors, and a strong interest in music – playing both the piano and guitar – to her practicum as Sistema Kingston.
