Professor named to scientific society

Eugene Borgida is a College of Liberal Arts dean finalist and psychology professor at the University of Minnesota.

A University of Minnesota psychology professor was named a fellow of one of the world’s largest scientific societies Tuesday.

Eugene Borgida is one of 388 scientists from around the country elected as a 2013 fellow in the American Association for the Advancement of Science.

The AAAS is an international organization that promotes science worldwide in part through education and policy initiatives. It publishes the academic journal “Science,” which has an estimated readership of 1 million.

Psychology department chair Monica Luciana said Borgida’s research on the connections between political issues and psychology has taken him to University programs beyond psychology. He’s taught courses in the Department of Political Science and the Law School.

At the same time, Luciana said, Borgida has also remained active in the Department of Psychology.

“He’s very much involved in the inner workings of our department,” she said.

Borgida is one of four finalists in the College of Liberal Arts dean search.

He has taught at the University since 1976.
