PSC Honors Archive


On October 30, former ISR director and Daniel Katz Distinguished University Professor of Psychology James Jackson delivered U-M's inaugural Distinguished Diversity Scholar Career Award Lecture to a packed auditorium. Jackson was selected as the first award winner for his innovative research on the influence of race on the health and well-being of African Americans. In his leadership of the Program for Research on Black Americans, Jackson was key in developing groundbreaking mental/physical health surveys of the US black population. He also developed training opportunities and served in mentorship roles for several generations of social scientists.
