August 5, 2011

Dear Dr. Rosenfield:

On this date, the Council of Directors of School Psychology Programs is honoring your contributions to the profession of School Psychology. You have advanced our field through your sustained research efforts in developing a model of instructional consultation, which has resulted in several books and scores of publications on the topic. You have focused your efforts on working with teachers in urban settings and in the application of the model with underserved youth.  As a faculty member at Fordham University, Temple University and in your current position at the University of Maryland, you have trained a significant number of school psychologists and clinicians who have, in turn, advanced the field through their own research and clinical endeavors. You have assumed significant national leadership roles in School Psychology, including President and Treasurer of APA Division 16, and similar positions within the Society for the Study of School Psychology. You also served on APA’s Board of Educational Affairs and was chair of the Association of State and Provincial Psychology Boards Examination Committee. Your prestigious awards and honors include the APA Distinguished Career Contributions to Education and Training Award (2000), the University of Maryland’s Presidential Award for Outstanding Service to Schools (1995), the APA Jack Bardon Distinguished Service Award, achieving Fellow status in APA Divisions 15 and 16, the Dorothy Hughes Memorial Award (New York University), the Alumni Achievement Award from the University of Wisconsin, and selected as the NASP 2006 Legends in School Psychology speaker. We extend a heartfelt thanks to you for the wide-ranging and enduring contributions to our field and are pleased to hold this dinner in your honor.
