Dr. Eleni Pinnow, Associate Professor of Psychology at the University of Wisconsin-Superior, was recently elected to be a Fellow in the Midwestern Psychological Association (MPA).

Fellow status is the highest honor an MPA member can earn, requiring evidence of significant contributions to the discipline of psychology and/or service to MPA. Pinnow was recognized for her professional accomplishments, publications and conference presentations.

“This is a hugely validating and affirming honor,” said Pinnow. “Often, when you work in academia, you rarely get feedback from peers outside your home institution, so to be honored like this in a public and formal way feels like a great accomplishment.”

Pinnow is the Behavioral Neuroscience Program Coordinator at UW-Superior, as well as Senior Year Experience Coordinator. Her achievements include five publications, three book chapters, and more than 40 scholarly presentations to MPA and other professional associations.

“I am most proud of being a faculty mentor for student researchers,” she said. “My role as mentor and researcher at UW-Superior is central to my ability to earn this honor. Through the opportunities to mentor student research, conduct my own research, collaborate with colleagues, and advise student organizations, I was able to meet the criteria for Fellow.”
