Dr. Mary Dozier, Unidel Amp DuPont Chair in Child Development in the Department of Psychological and Brain Sciences, has received the Urie Bronfenbrenner Award for Lifetime Contribution to Developmental Psychology. The honor is awarded by the Developmental Psychology division of the American Psychological Association (APA). The APA describes the Bronfenbrenner award as recognition for:
"an individual; whose work has, over a lifetime career, contributed not only to the science of developmental psychology, and who has also worked to the benefit of the application of developmental psychology to society. The individual's contributions may have been made through advocacy, direct service, influencing public policy or education, or through any other outcomes that enable scientific developmental psychology to better the condition of children and families."
Dr. Dozier was presented with the award at the APA annual conference in Chicago, IL.
