Dr. Maisha T. Winn, UC Davis Chancellor’s Leadership Professor and Faculty Director of the School of Education’s Transformative Justice in Education Center (TJE), and Dr. Lawrence (Torry) Winn, TJE Executive Director, have been honored with the Chancellor’s Achievement Award for Diversity and Community for 2018-2019 in the Special Recognition Category. This award recognizes the exemplary contributions they have made to enhancing campus inclusiveness and diversity through their leadership roles at TJE.
Housed in the School of Education, TJE’s primary focus has been on transforming teacher education, schools and community organizations. In addition to the outreach the Center performs at the local, state and national levels, TJE reaches undergraduate and graduate students, faculty and staff across the UC Davis campus.
“Through the work of the Transformative Justice in Education Center, Dr. Maisha Winn and Dr. Torry Winn have tirelessly advocated for social justice and sought to build community on campus and beyond,” said School of Education Dean Lauren Lindstrom. “In less than two years, TJE has emerged as a national leader for transformative justice and racial equity, and this special recognition for the important impact they have made is well-deserved.”
