Great news for Mike, his colleagues and students and for all Behaviour Analysts in New Zealand!
Excerpt from a letter from the Society for the Advancement of Behavior Analysis (SABA):
“… The Experimental Analysis of Behavior Research Unit at the University of Auckland will receive the award for Programmatic Contributions to Behavior Analysis from our Society at the 2009 ABAI convention in Phoenix, AZ. The award is given to an agency, department, or facility of an organization that contributes to the ongoing and enduring development of behavior analysis. In selecting the EAB Research Unit of Auck1and University for recognition, SABA Board members commented on the decades of high-quality research that has come out of the unit and the many, many distinguished graduates who have contributed to work in the laboratory and whose theses and dissertations have been borne from that work.”
