Dr. Deborah Jones, Professor of Clinical Psychology, is the recipient of the 2020 Office of the Provost Engaged Scholarship Award.
The Office of the Provost Engaged Scholarship Award was established in 2000 by Provost Dick Richardson to recognize extraordinary public service and engaged scholarship at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. This award recognizes faculty members or university units for exemplary engaged scholarship in service to the state of North Carolina. The service should serve as an example of excellence, including responsiveness to community concerns and strong community partnerships. Three Provost awards are given annually, one each for engaged teaching, engaged research, and engaged partnership.
Dr. Jones was selected for the Office of the Provost Engaged Scholarship Award in Engaged Research for her exceptional and innovative work in providing free, evidence-based mental health care for young children with behavioral disorders. She will be honored at the 2020 UNC Chapel Hill Public Service Awards Ceremony on Friday, April 24. Congratulations, Dr. Jones!
