Meet the newest member of the International Academic Programs Faculty

Crandall University is pleased to welcome José Wellington Sousa as Assistant Professor of Management in the International Academic Programs division.

Professor Sousa comes to Crandall with a Master’s degree in Administration  and a Bachelor’s degree in Economic Sciences (University of Amazonia) , and he is working on his PhD in Adult Education and Community Engagement at the University of Regina. He has extensive experience in the international nonprofit sector as a community development practitioner working in countries like Brazil, Colombia, Uganda, and the United States. On top of this, he is extremely passionate about community engagement and development, as well as social change and management, all of which will serve to benefit his students here at Crandall.

“As a former international student and newcomer myself, I feel honoured to join Crandall’s International Academic Programs to teach and mentor international students as they prepare for their work and life in Canada,” shared Wellington. “As an assistant professor at Crandall University I am very excited to help my students have ‘aha!’ moments, to co-create knowledge, and to serve and empower communities. I can’t wait to start!”

Due to the growing nature of International Academic Programs, Professor Sousa represents the third tenure track hire in the department in less than two years. “It’s exciting to see our programs continue to develop, and I am beyond thrilled to be welcoming Wellington to our growing team,” said Dr. Dannie Brown, the Dean of International Academic Programs. “We are looking forward to seeing the impact he will have on our programs and our students.”

Professor Sousa joins the Crandall faculty this summer, and will be teaching classes such as Managing Diversity in Organizations, Managing Organizations in Social Change, and Organizational Behaviour.
