Julie Ancis, associate vice president of Institute Diversity, was recently elected to Fellow Status of the American Psychological Association (APA) in Division 35: Society for the Psychology of Women for outstanding contributions with respect to scholarly publications and impact in the psychology of women.
In 2011, she was elected Fellow of APA in Division 17: Society of Counseling Psychology. To achieve Fellow Status, APA members must meet a number of criteria including active engagement in the advancement of psychology and evidence of outstanding contribution or performance in the field of psychology.
Ancis has published and presented extensively in the area of racial and gender attitudes, multicultural competence, university climate, and women’s legal experiences. She is the author of several books, including The Complete Women’s Psychotherapy Treatment Planner, Culturally Responsive Interventions: Innovative Approaches to Working with Diverse Populations, and Promoting Student Learning and Student Development at a Distance: Student Affairs Concepts and Practices for Televised Instruction and Other Forms of Distance Learning. Ancis is currently working on a co-edited text about women and girls in the legal system with NYU Press. In addition, she is co-principal investigator with Christopher Lee on a $3.8 million U.S. Department of Education First in the World Grant.
Prior to joining Georgia Tech, Ancis was a professor in the Department of Counseling and Psychological Services at Georgia State University.
As an example of her dedication to the psychology of women, Ancis, in consultation and collaboration with the ADVANCE professors, will lead a series of workshops this fall on the impact of implicit assumptions in faculty hiring.
