About Nigmendra

I have been a Lecturer in the Department of Political Science since 2000. I teach courses in Intro to Political Science, International Relations, International Conflict Management, and various other lecture, on-line and seminar classes over the years. I am a recipient of the 2006 Angela Armitt Teaching Award, 2016 Professor of the Year by the Undergraduate Political Science Association, and the 2017 Residence Life Teaching Award of Excellence, as well as extensive outreach and involvement with through official and student organizations and student-focussed activities. 

Like many, I seek to find opportunities to improve pedagogy, working conditions, and the student experience, as my focus is on teaching and student engagement. In particular, I seek to understand the role, challenges and concerns contract faculty face, and bring them to the UWOFA Board and other committees, in order to better the work environment and educational experience for all at Western.
