PROFESSOR OF black women's studies
Dr. Stephanie Y. Evans
My teaching philosophy is an extension of my research agenda. I work in the tradition of social justice education epitomized by generations of Black women teachers like Fanny Jackson Coppin, Anna Julia Cooper, Mary McLeod Bethune, and Septima Clark. As Toni Morrison argues, teaching values in a university requires us to examine, evaluate, posit, and reinforce--the values I teach are grounded in the living legacy of progressive Black women educators.
