Dr. Bensimon receives the 2017 AERA Social Justice in Education Award

Dr. Estela Mara Bensimon is the recipient of the 2017 AERA Social Justice in Education Award. The American Educational Research Association (AERA), a national research society, gives the annual award to honor individuals who have advanced social justice through their education research. Attendees of the 2017 AERA conference are invited to attend Dr. Bensimon’s social justice lecture, titled “Make Higher Education Just.”

“The Social Justice Action Award is different from most awards because it honors an individual who is not only a scholar, but also an activist. We give the award to individuals who walk their talk. Estela Bensimon exemplifies the characteristics of this award – thoughtful, demanding, passionate, and laser-focused on creating a more equitable world.” – Dr. William G. Tierney, Wilbur Kieffer Professor of Higher Education, University Professor & Co-director, Pullias Center for Higher Education
