Yussen honored as AERA Fellow
Steve Yussen, professor in the Institute of Child Development and former dean of the college, has been named as a Fellow of the American Educational Research Association (AERA). The 2011 fellows will be inducted on Saturday, April 9, 2011, during AERA's 92nd Annual Meeting in New Orleans, Louisiana.
The AERA Fellows Program was established by the AERA Council in 2007 to honor education researchers with substantial research accomplishments, to convey the association's commitment to excellence in research, and to emphasize to new scholars the importance of sustained research of excellence in the field. The Class of 2011 Fellows is the third group to be inducted based on nomination by peers, selection by the Fellows Program Committee, and approval by council. It is the Association's expectation that Fellows will be visibly engaged in important AERA programs and activities and that they will serve as models and mentors to the next generation of scholars long into the future for the field.
