On behalf of Florida State University President John Thrasher, Vice President for Research Gary K. Ostrander, and the Council on Research & Creativity, Dr. Betsy Becker has been selected to receive a Distinguished Research Professor Award for 2015-2016.

Before her time at Florida State, she served as faculty in the Measurement and Quantitative Methods program at Michigan State University.
