Mary Lynn Stewart

SFU Excellence in Teaching Award, 2007

Department of Gender, Sexuality and Women's Studies
Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences

Dr. Mary Lynn Stewart received the 2007 SFU Excellence in Teaching Award.

Stewart is a fair but demanding taskmaster who expects—and brings out—the very best in her students. But she is also renowned as an animated, humorous, impeccably prepared instructor. “I’ve essentially remained a traditional teacher,” she says. “I lecture and I conduct tutorials. But I’m also very passionate about communicating to students the joy of intellectual life, the way in which it engages your mind and your curiosity.”
