Charisa-Marie Alexis-François

Core Course Professor

Dr. Charisa-Marie Alexis-François is an academic who has functioned in the tertiary educational arena for the past eight years. As a former Cambridge World Rank National Scholarship Awardee, in Caribbean and European History, Dr. Alexis-François has always been passionate about understanding how the past has shaped our social reality as a Caribbean people. The desire to locate connectivity between the physical and numinous world with that of personal identity, led her down a winding interdisciplinary academic road, with rest stops that metaphorically materialised into a Diploma in Theology (Hons.), a B.Sc. in Psychology, Minor in History and an MPhil in Cultural Studies, which was sequentially upgraded to a Ph.D. in Cultural Studies. Dr Alexis- François is interested in the unique constructions of gender and leadership in the Caribbean landscape  which currently serves as her area of specialisation. The following quote is a reflective of her desire to operate within learning environments, and is vey much part of her core teaching philosophy: “Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world.” Nelson Mandela.​
