Psychology Professor David Daniel Nationally Recognized


Psychology Professor David Daniel has just been recognized on the Rick Hess Straight Up (RHSU) Edu-Scholar Public Influence Ranking. The list, which evaluates 20,000 U.S. university-based scholars, chooses the top 200 professors and researchers that are contributing to public debates about education. The award “reflects both a scholar’s body of academic work—encompassing the breadth and influence of their scholarship—and their footprint on the public discourse last year.”

This is not the first time Daniel has been recognized. At JMU, Daniel received the Outstanding Teaching Award (2014) and was voted “Best Professor” by JMU Students (2013). Outside of JMU, Daniel received the award for “Transforming Education through Neuroscience” from the Learning & the Brain Foundation and The International Mind, Brain and Education Society (IMBES), a Teaching Excellence Award from the American Psychological Association and inclusion in Princeton Review’s 2012 book of “Best 300 Professors”

Beyond his teaching duties, Daniel is also Managing Editor of the Mind, Brian and Education Journal.
