At McGill’s annual Bravo gala last week the winners of major provincial, national and international prizes, together with their families, friends and colleagues, gathered to celebrate excellence in research and scholarship.
The University’s Bravo gala, now in its eleventh year, celebrates the cream of the researcher crop.
Two professors from the Faculty of Education were honoured at this year’s Bravo gala: Professor Susanne Lajoie, of our Department of Educational and Counselling Psychology, and Professor Claudia Mitchell, of the Department of Integrated Studies in Education.
In October 2015 Dr. Lajoie was awarded Acfas’ Prix Thérèse Gouin-Décarie recognizing her pioneering work in the social sciences. Citing her “groundbreaking research over two decades, and her acclaimed prolific publications,” Dr. Claudia Mitchell was named a Fellow of the Royal Society of Canada in September of last year.
