We are excited to announce the following 2021 FASS Award recipients from the Department of Psychology:

FASS Dean’s Medals 

FASS Dean's Medals are given in recognition of academic excellence in research, teaching, and service, with an emphasis on significant contributions while in the Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences at SFU. Congratulations to Dr. Viljoen:
