Congratulations to Associate Professor Dr. Kendra Jason for receiving the Bonnie E. Cone Early-Career Professorship in Teaching. This award is given annually to one faculty member who has earned tenure within the last three years. Recipients of this award have shown stellar commitment to teaching in their early careers.

“Jason aims to create a transformative learning environment for students where they can acquire skills to identify social statuses, ideologies and inequities and then develop social change strategies with immediate and long-term life applications. She challenges students to take the taken-for-granted and make it problematic, through questioning assumptions, framings, inclusions, emphases and exclusion where her overall goal is to make sociology relevant to students’ everyday lives.” – Inside UNC Charlotte, April 22nd 2024
