Dr. Lauren Cattaneo has been awarded the 2018 Outstanding Teaching and Mentoring award by the Society for the Psychological Study of Social Issues. She was awarded this at the SPSSI’s annual conference in Pittsburgh.
Per the SPSSI website, it is “a group of over 300 scientists from psychology and related fields who share a common interest in research on the psychological aspects of important social and policy issues. In various ways, the SPSSI seeks to bring theory and practice into focus on human problems of the group, the community, and nations, as well as the increasingly important problems that have no national boundaries.”
The award is given each year to two instructors who are recognized for “their teaching excellence in psychological study of social issues and in recognition of mentoring students in policy relevant research.” The other award winner was Dr. Phia Salter from Texas A&M.
Congratulations to Dr. Cattaneo for her continued commitment to our Psychology graduate students and the research they are conducting at George Mason University.
