Two Honors for Dr. Gurung

Dr. Regan Gurung had a pretty amazing year by any standard – particularly by being named Wisconsin Professor of the Year and being elected President of the American Psychological Association’s Society for the Teaching of Psychology. Well, he’s at it again, having been honored with two more wonderful awards just since our last issue in the Spring. First, he was named the Midwestern Regional Faculty Advisor Award Winner for Psi Chi, the International Honor Society in Psychology. Second, he became the Ben J. and Joyce Rosenberg Professor of Human Development and Psychology at the fall convocation that opens the academic year at UW-Green Bay. A named professorship is a significant honor, and, perhaps best yet, it comes with a really cool medallion he’ll get to wear at each graduation ceremony (click here for photo and complete news release). In future issues, we’re thinking we might save space by instead listing the awards he has NOT won (e.g., we’re pretty sure he hasn’t earned the Nobel Peace Prize – yet!). Seriously…congratulations, Dr. Gurung!
