Daniel Teaching Excellence Award, Four-Year Colleges and Universities, from the Society for the Teaching of Psychology (Division 2 of the American Psychological Association). She was also the 2009 Arcadia University Professor of the Year and the 2000 recipient of the Lindback Award for teaching excellence.

Dr. Miserandino received her B.A. in psychology from the University of Rochester and a Ph.D. in Social-Personality Psychology from Cornell University. Dr. Miserandino came to Arcadia University after a postdoctoral fellowship in Human Motivation at the University of Rochester and full-time teaching.

 

Miserandino is a Fellow of the American Psychological Association.  Election to Fellow status requires evidence of unusual and outstanding contributions or performance in the field of psychology.

A high level of competence or steady and continuing contributions are not sufficient to warrant Fellow status. National impact must be demonstrated.(http://www.apa.org/membership/fellows/index.aspx).
