National Association of School Psychologists Honors Duquesne Administrator
Dr. Jeff Miller, associate academic vice president of administration at Duquesne University, received a Presidential Citation for Outstanding Contributions to the Field of School Psychology from the National Association of School Psychologists (NASP). Miller received the award on Feb. 20 from NASP President Phil Lazarus.
Miller earned the award for his work on the Specialty Petition to the Commission on the Recognition of Specialties and Proficiencies in Professional Psychology. For this project, he headed a team of nationally recognized school psychologists that worked for more than a year to prepare the petition, which is currently under national public review. This petition is used to reauthorize the term "school psychology" as a specialty of professional psychology.
Miller, who also serves as professor of education and associate provost, is a board-certified school psychologist and American Psychological Association Fellow.
