Dr. Rubin Receives National Service Leadership Award

University News | 03.01.20

Neal Rubin, Ph.D., ABBP, was honored by the National Council of Schools and Programs of Professional Psychology on January 23, 2020 with the National Service Leadership Recognition Award. Dr. Rubin teaches for the Doctor of Psychology (Psy.D.) in Clinical Psychology program in Chicago.

Throughout his career, Dr. Rubin has focused on psychologists’ moral and ethical responsibilities, as well as psychology’s potential to address challenges faced by some of the world’s most vulnerable populations. This thinking bridges psychology and human rights communities.

“Dr. Rubin’s leadership addresses how psychology envisions social responsibility on a range of issues related to inequality. It also promotes awareness of the potential for psychological science to aid in the realization of the highest of human aspirations: equality, freedom, and respect for human dignity,” said Cristina Cox, Ph.D., Chair of the Psychology Department and Wendy Paszkiewicz, Psy.D., Vice President of Academic Affairs for Adler University’s Chicago Campus, who nominated him for the award.

Founded in 1976, National Council of Schools and Programs of Professional Psychology is an organization composed of delegates from programs and schools of professional psychology. Their goal is to advance the development of the highest quality graduate training in professional psychology.

Dr. Rubin also recently co-edited a book for Cambridge University Press that will be published in June 2020. The Cambridge Handbook of Psychology and Human Rights will offer an integrated history of human rights and psychological science.

The handbook demonstrates the central role psychological science has played in the past and continues to play in addressing some of the world’s most pressing human rights challenges. The book features more than 100 experts from around the globe to address these social justice issues.
