Roxana Moreno, associate professor of educational psychology in the College of Education, was one of 67 scholars named recently to be Fellows by the American Educational Research Association (AERA) in recognition of their exceptional scientific or scholarly contributions to education research or significant contributions to the field through the development of research opportunities and settings.

The AERA Fellows are known both nationally and internationally for their outstanding contributions to education research. Through the Fellows Program, the Association aims to convey its commitment to excellence in research and to underscore to new scholars the importance of sustained research contributions in the field.

The Fellows were inducted during AERA's 91st Annual Meeting in Denver, Colo. recently. The Fellows will be visibly engaged in important AERA programs and activities and that they will serve as models and mentors to the next generation of scholars long into the future for the field.

The Fellows designation is a high honor of the Association. Nominated by peers, selected by the Fellows Program Committee, and approved by the AERA Council.

The AERA Fellows Program inducted 44 scholars in 2009 and initially launched with 360 Inaugural Fellows in 2008. For details and a complete list of fellows, visit: AERA.
