Kidnie wins OCUFA Teaching Award

English and Writing Studies professor M.J. Kidnie has been named one of only six winners of the Ontario Confederation of University Faculty Associations (OCUFA) Teaching and Academic Librarianship Award. Since 1973, these awards have recognized exceptional contributions made by professors and librarians to the quality of higher education in Ontario.

“We need universities to fuel the future, and you can’t have great universities without great professors,” Kate Lawson, OCUFA President, said. “This year’s winners embody the commitment, skill, and passion that create incredible learning opportunities for students across Ontario.”

Kidnie, along with other winners from McMaster, Toronto, Wilfrid Laurier and York, will be honoured at the 41st annual OCUFA Awards Ceremony on Oct. 25 in Toronto.
