Dr. Keely Muscatell, Assistant Professor of Social Psychology, is the faculty recipient of the 2020-2021 Innovation in Equity and Inclusion Service Award.
Up to four separate awards are given annually to faculty members, graduate students, postdoctoral scholars, research staff, and/or administrative staff within our Department who have each made significant, innovative, and impactful contributions to enhancing equity and inclusivity in the Department of Psychology & Neuroscience. The award recognizes individuals with outstanding accomplishments and general impact in research, teaching, mentoring, and/or service and considers their significance, innovation, and impact.
Dr. Muscatell was selected for this award for her research on discrimination and health inequality, centering on the experience of underrepresented populations. In addition, her recognition for this award is largely due to her tenacious efforts to support the 2021 DEI initiatives in the department by taking leadership roles in multiple DEI committees. Dr. Muscatell has been a catalyst for change within the department, helping us develop new and innovative ways to make the department more diverse, equitable, and inclusive. Dr. Muscatell was honored with the Innovation in Equity and Inclusivity Service Award at the Psychology and Neuroscience Departmental Awards Ceremony on May 5, 2021. Congratulations, Dr. Muscatell!
