The University of Newcastle, Australia

Honorary Fellowship for former UON Chancellor

Tuesday, 7 October 2014

Professor Trevor Waring AM, former University of Newcastle Chancellor, was made an Honorary Fellow at the recent Australian Psychological Society's annual conference.

With over 22,000 Australian Psychological Society (APS) members, this is a rare distinction. Fewer than one percent of the membership are represented by the category of 'Fellow', a privilege that Professor Waring had already held for a number of years.

The grade of Honours Fellow is bestowed rarely, with only 14 previous recipients in the Society's 50 year history. The fellowship is bestowed on existing fellows who have made an extraordinary contribution to APS and a distinguished contribution to the advancement of psychological knowledge or practice.

Professor Waring is a Clinical Psychologist and conjoint Professor of Psychology at the University of Newcastle.
