Psychological Fellow

Bobbie Yee (Family and Consumer Sciences) was named a Fellow by the Society for Community Research and Action (SCRA) of the American Psychological Association. SCRA Fellows are chosen for their “unusual and outstanding contributions or performance in community research and action.” They maintain sustained productivity in community research and action over a period of a minimum of five years; offer distinctive contributions to knowledge and/or practice in community psychology that are recognized by others as excellent; and make an impact beyond the immediate setting in which the they work.

Community psychology, the field in which Yee works, encourages the development of theory, research and practice relevant to the reciprocal relationships between individuals and the social system which constitute the community context.
