Cal State San Bernardino professor of psychology Jodie Ullman was recently honored with the Western Psychological Association’s (WPA) Lifetime Achievement Award, which recognizes the lifetime of outstanding achievements in teaching, research and professional involvement by a WPA member.

"I'm so honored to receive this award; it just seems unreal! It is a wonderful recognition of my professional accomplishments," Ullman said. "I look at past awardees and feel so privileged to be a part of the group. My colleagues in the psychology department and the university have always been incredibly supportive. I could not have achieved this honor without all of their support and encouragement throughout the years. I believe that when any one of us succeeds, we all succeed, so I share this award with them!"

Ullman, a quantitative psychologist who earned her Ph.D. in measurement and psychometrics from UCLA, has been a professor of psychology at CSUSB for 26 years.

Marc Robinson, CSUSB assistant professor of history, is one of 10 scholars named as a member of the 2022 class of Mellon Emerging Faculty Leaders, which supports junior faculty whose research focuses on contemporary American history, politics, culture, and society, and who are committed to the creation of an inclusive campus community for underrepresented students and scholars.

Funded by the Mellon Foundation, the MEFL Awards support junior faculty whose research focuses on contemporary American history, politics, culture, and society, and who are committed to the creation of an inclusive campus community for underrepresented students and scholars.

"It was both the promise of Marc's research and the way he's become an early-career campus leader who's committed to mentoring students, to building bridges, to serving the institution in a way that makes everyone feel more included," said Frances Hannan, director of multimedia projects for the Institute for Citizens & Scholars. "The MEFL Award emphasizes early-career leaders who are 'triple threats' in research, teaching, and campus engagement/leadership, and the selectors felt that he was really a model of that standard, deeply committed to his students and colleagues.”
