Governing Board grants emeritus distinction for English faculty


The Governing Board of the Maricopa County Community College District granted emeritus distinction to English faculty Pamela Davenport at their March meeting.

Pam has served with distinction as one of Chandler-Gilbert’s founding faculty members. Since her arrival at CGCC in 1987 as English faculty, Pam expanded her involvement to include learning communities, faculty professional development, student organizations, as well as serving several terms as chair of the Languages and Humanities division.

Pam cofounded a distinctive part of CGCC’s faculty development program called the Network of Excellence, a professional learning community that provides new and continuing residential faculty the opportunity to learn about the college and to improve the quality of learning and teaching.

For many years Pam was faculty liaison to CGCC’s Native American student organization, Eagle Feather.

Pam has facilitated many writing workshops for faculty and instituted MCCD’s Writing Reflection and Renewal Project.

In 2006, Pam co-founded the Reflection, Renewal, and Role initiative at CGCC, which supports integrity, respect, inclusion, communication, and cooperation, and helps employees incorporate these principles to achieve a renewed sense of vocation in the day-to-day workplace. Under Pam’s leadership R3 continues to flourish and grow.
