New faculty award for those who focus on LGBTQ+ issues

The Dr. David Powers Corwin Teaching and Scholarship Award recognizes the contributions of faculty whose teaching and/or scholarship centers the experiences of LGBTQ+  people and communities, focuses on gender and sexuality, and/or grounds their pedagogy in queerness, justice, and liberation” It will be given out annually to an instructional faculty member and David was the inaugural winner.

David holds a joint faculty appointment in the School of Integrative Studies and Women and Gender Studies where they teach courses that focus on feminist and queer theory, gender and sexuality in popular culture, friendship studies, and ecofeminism. They also strive to make any course they teach writing intensive and use principles from the field of writing and rhetoric in their assignment design, feedback, and overall pedagogy. They currently serve as associate director for Women and Gender Studies.
