Dr. John H. M. Andrews, former Dean of Education, UBC from 1973-79, and his wife Doris Andrews have generously endowed one award offered to tenure and tenure-track faculty in the Faculty of Education. This award is designed to support educational research and development projects that have an impact on the community and make a contribution to society. The research component must have a direct impact on the community and increase our knowledge and understanding of Canadian education. The development component must be conducted in collaboration with a community educational partner. The award is based on Dr. Andrews’ belief that teachers, in practicing their profession, are called upon to relate, not just to their students, but also to parents, fellow citizens and teachers, school administration, their professional association, staff groups, governmental agencies, as well as the broad range of social and political groups in the community.
