The Society of Personality and Social Psychology has named Vice Provost for Equity and Inclusion and Chief Diversity Officer, Dr. Robert Sellers, as the 2021 recipient of the Distinguished Scholar Award.

Started in 2011, the Distinguished Scholar Award is a senior career award that recognizes the broad scope and potentially integrative nature of scholarship in personality and social psychology. It honors a scholar who has made distinctively valuable research contributions across his or her career that bridge personality and social psychology or bridge personality or social psychology to another field (ie. law, education, organizations, or medicine). It is intended for individuals whose career contributions are outstanding, but do not fit neatly within the prototypical social or personality research areas.
