Davison Receives Provost Engaged Scholarship Award for Engaged Teaching

We’re so proud of Associate Professor Jean Davison who received the 2018 Office of the Provost Engaged Scholarship Award for Engaged Teaching this week at an event hosted by the Carolina Center for Public Service!

Dr. Davison was recognized for her great work teaching Carolina Nursing students about the health disparities facing the growing migrant Latino population in North Carolina and how to provide culturally competent care through the service-learning course, Health Care in the Global Context: Migrant Latino Health.

“Jean is a wonderful exemplar of the School’s values of excellence and service to all people of this state through education and practice. We are lucky and grateful to have a colleague of Jean’s compassion, commitment and energy — hers is a standard we are proud of and aspire to, and we’re delighted to see her recognized for it,” said Nena Peragallo Montano, dean of the School of Nursing.

This award recognizes UNC-Chapel Hill faculty and organizations that have performed extraordinary public service and engaged scholarship and/or enabled such service by others. The honor comes with a cash award, a framed certificate and recognition at Carolina’s annual Public Service Awards Ceremony, which was held on Monday, April 9 at the Carolina Club.

Congratulations, Dr. Davison!
