Professor, Director of the Institute for Sexual Minority Studies and Services (iSMSS)

In four consecutive national research projects funded by the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council, Dr. André P. Grace has used qualitative methodology focused on explorations of the self, others, and culture to examine the positionalities and needs of students and teachers across sexual and gender minority differences. He has also studied educational interest groups in political analyses of their impacts on inclusion and accommodation of sexual and gender minorities in education and culture. Dr. Grace keeps his research and service in dynamic equilibrium. He is co-founder of Camp fYrefly, a summer leadership camp for sexual and gender minority youth, and he is national consultant on sexual and gender minority issues for the Canadian Teachers’ Federation. Dr. Grace has served as expert advisor to the Chief Public Health Officer’s Reports Unit on the State of Public Health in Canada for the 2011 and 2012 national reports. At the 2010 Standing Conference on University Teaching and Research in the Education of Adults, University of Warwick, UK, Dr. Grace received the Ian Martin Award for Social Justice for his paper entitled Space Matters: Lifelong Learning, Sexual Minorities, and Realities of Adult Education as Social Education.
