Ron Levi is Professor at the Munk School of Global Affairs & Public Policy and the Department of Sociology, and is Distinguished Professor of Global Justice. He has been chosen to receive the 2022 U of T Global Educator Award, which gives recognition to University of Toronto faculty members who demonstrate an ability to successfully operate and communicate within different cultural contexts through teaching methods that reflect a diversity of perspectives and invite engagement from all students. The recipient receives a cash prize of $3000 and is honoured at U of T’s annual Excellence in Teaching Reception.
An article, published recently on the Munk School of Global Affairs & Public Policy website, quotes Alexie Tcheuyap, Vice-Provost & Associate Vice-President, International, who chaired this year’s selection committee, as saying that Professor Levi was chosen in part because of his “clear commitment to pedagogies that reflect a diversity of perspectives and invite engagement from all students—creating the conditions for a truly global learning environment.” Peter Loewen, the Munk School's Director is quoted as saying that “Professor Levi is a transformative educator who has shaped how we think about the field of global affairs, has helped to enhance the diversity of ideas and of our student body, and is a proven leader in the development of innovative opportunities for students. “He has been a leader in curriculum development and pedagogy since the Munk School was established. He has, more than anyone else, established the Munk School as a genuinely global public affairs institution.”
