Established in 2001 by the OISE Graduate Students' Association (GSA), the Muriel Fung Student Appreciation Award recognizes graduate students who have made outstanding extra-curricular contributions to OISE. In naming the award after Muriel Fung, former doctoral candidate in Sociology and Equity Studies (SESE, now Social Justice Education, SJE) and former OISE Research Officer, the Graduate Students’ Association recognizes her heartfelt commitment to developing the OISE community and concern with social justice issues both inside and outside of the institution. The qualities of service, leadership, and generosity of spirit demonstrated by Muriel Fung during her years with OISE include: acting as Vice-President of the International Students' Association (ISA) and as Trustee in CUPE 3907 for three years, representing students on the OISE computer committee, volunteering with the Comparative, International & Developmental Education Centre (CIDEC), assisting many students and faculty in statistical analysis, coordinating events in SESE (now SJE) and being active in the former (OISE-wide) AntiRacist Network. These qualities are reflected in the efforts of those students who will be chosen to receive this award.
