The Oregon Safe Schools and Communities Coalition (OSSCC) will honor Dr. Olivia Murray at their yearly awards ceremony for her work supporting LGBTQIA students.
Murray is an associate professor of practice in the Curriculum and Instruction Department, where she teaches in the Graduate Teacher Education Program. She leads a student group on the PSU campus that meets periodically to discuss pressing issues related to gender and sexual orientation in education. Her research interests include culturally responsive classroom management and the use of queer-inclusive pedagogy in teacher education.
The OSSCC Safe Schools Awards celebrates Oregonians who have made schools and communities safer for gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender youth.
