Meritorious Service

lott.jpgThe Rhode Island Psychological Association recognized Professor Emeritus Albert J. Lott with its Musiker-Merenda Award for Significant Contributions to Mental Health.

In October, Lott was cited for his dedicated service to the psychology profession, which has included research, teaching, academic leadership, mentoring, and a tireless commitment to social justice.

He joined the URI faculty in 1969 and became a pioneer in women’s studies and men’s studies.

“Al remains one of the most popular and beloved professors and mentors to have taught at URI,” says his colleague Kat Quina, professor of psychology. “His Men and Masculinity course is still taught today.” A Fellow of the American Psychological Association, Lott is a prolific scholar, publishing extensively in the area of social psychology and prejudice and discrimination. His many roles included chairing the Psychology Department, presiding over the Faculty Senate, sponsoring an Honors Colloquium, and serving as faculty advisor for students studying lesbian, gay and bisexual issues.

Since his retirement in 1996, Lott has continued his commitment to social justice, notably through his work with Marriage Equality R.I., and nationally through his work with lawyers and veterans at the Servicemembers Legal Defense Network in Washington, D.C., on efforts to repeal Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell rules.
