Distinguished University Professor - Congratulations Harriet MacMillan
On behalf of all of us in the Department of Psychiatry & Behavioural Neurosciences, we would all like to congratulate Harriet MacMillan on being recognized as a Distinguished University Professor, the highest award that McMaster can confer on a faculty member. It is a fantastic accomplishment and a fitting recognition of Harriet’s work in understanding the impacts of intimate partner violence and child maltreatment, and of her provincial, national and global leadership in this area.
The title of Distinguished University Professor, created in 1996, is conferred only on faculty members who have demonstrated distinction and impact well beyond McMaster. No more than two per cent of all full-time faculty can hold the title and those awarded the title must have demonstrated an outstanding and sustained research record that demonstrates international impact and recognition. He or she should also be able to demonstrate excellence in teaching and learning and a history of service that has had an impact on the community.
It is fair to say that Harriet has excelled in all of these areas and as a Department we are very proud of what she has achieved. Congratulations Harriet!
