In Memoriam: Dr. Aziz Choudry


Published: 28May2021

It is with great sadness that we inform you of the untimely passing of Dr. Aziz Choudry. Originally from New Zealand, Aziz joined us at McGill in 2008 and was an Associate Professor in the Department of Integrated Studies in Education until recently when he became a Visiting Professor at the University of Johannesburg’s Faculty of Education.

An innovative researcher, author, and educator, Aziz inspired countless colleagues and students to challenge societal norms to advance social justice and learning advocacy. A passionate social and political activist, Aziz served on the boards of Montreal’s Immigrant Workers Centre and the Global Justice Ecology Project as well as having been affiliated with the Centre for Education Rights and Transformation.

On behalf of McGill Faculty of Education, we send our deepest condolences to Aziz’s family, friends, colleagues, and students. May we continue to be inspired by his memory and honour him with our work.
