Henry Giroux awarded honorary doctorate from University of the West of Scotland

Dr. Henry A. Giroux, McMaster University Chair for Scholarship in the Public Interest, was recently awarded an honorary doctorate from University of the West of Scotland.

On July 4 Dr. Giroux gave a commencement address to the USW Hamilton Graduation. His address was a powerful message to youth of both the challenges facing them as well as optimism for the future.

“For change to happen,” says Giroux, “you must be visionary, risk taking, willing to make trouble and think dangerously.”
