On December 4, 2017, Dr. Wendy Josephson–a longstanding faculty member in the Psychology Department–taught her final class of her academic career. To mark this occasion, The Department’s Chair (Dr. Williams) surprised Dr. Josephson with a colourful bouquet of balloons and delicious cupcakes for everyone to enjoy. It was an emotional occasion that concluded decades of superlative and dedicated teaching, productive research projects in important areas such as bullying and anti-bullying and the promotion of mental health and well-being, and devoted mentorship of students. Faculty, staff, and students shall miss her inspiring lectures, not to mention her smiling and warm presence in the Department and on-campus.
The Psychology Department wishes Dr. Josephson a joyful retirement!
