 2014 Distinguished Teaching Contributions Award

Ann Marie Ryan, Michigan State University

A truly great teacher is highly admired and respected for the ways he or she has positively influenced the lives of students. Dr. Ryan is one of those teachers. A tireless advocate for students, her classes contain a blend of research and practice, both theory and application that for more than 20 years have challenged and brought out the best in students. Under her guidance, a deeply appreciative cohort of students have developed and sharpened their abilities to think, design, and collect and analyze data, all important attributes of an I-O psychologist. Current and former students frequently mention her superior mentoring skills as being so important to them and how they appreciated the time she gave them to provide immediate and valuable feedback. A signature part of her work has been identifying funding and research opportunities, giving students practical experience working on applied projects and often resulting in their first authored paper and job. A former president of SIOP, her theoretical, practical and service-oriented contributions to industrial-organizational psychology are impressive, but to her many students it is her teaching contributions that have impacted their careers in so many positive ways. Adding to her teaching legacy is the Distinguished University Professor Award she received in 2011 from Michigan State University.
