Jordan D. Troisi, who will be a new assistant professor at Sewanee starting in the 2014-2015 academic year, has been named one of the recipients of the 2014 American Psychological Association (APA) Early Career Achievement Award.  The award recognizes astute leadership and contributions to the field of psychology among individuals recently awarded their doctorate.

The award will support Dr. Troisi’s travel to the APA Convention in August 2014 in Washington, DC.  As an active member of APA Division 2 (The Society for the Teaching of Psychology), as well as the Co-Chair of the Division 2 Early Career Psychologists Committee, Dr. Troisi will play a significant role in three presentations that blend topics related to teaching, research, and faculty development while at the Convention.  He will serve as
