In loving memory of Dr. Devon T. Wade, the Department of Interdisciplinary Studies at the Center for Worker Education at the City College of New York is grateful for contributions toward the Dr. Devon T. Wade Award to support worthy CCNY students.
We are grateful to Joan Robinson, Anna Hidalgo, Bailey Brown, Dialika Sall, Dominic T. Walker, and the vast community of friends, colleagues, students and family who lived, worked and studied alongside Devon.
The Dr. Devon T. Wade Award has been established as a way to honor and celebrate Devon's extraordinary life and career. Devon was a doctoral candidate in sociology at Columbia University at his untimely passing. He was posthumously granted his Ph.D. by the university in recognition of his exceptional life and work. Dr. Wade’s research focused on stigma, trauma, and discipline in school settings. He was a passionate teacher and mentor, particularly for groups historically underrepresented in academia. Dr. Wade was also an outspoken advocate for marginalized communities, particularly Black and communities of color, and families and communities impacted by incarceration.
