Northeastern University Honors Program creates student award in honor of Bouvé professor Laurie Kramer

Laurie Kramer, a professor of Applied Psychology in the Bouvé College of Health Sciences’  School of Community Health and Behavioral Sciences, has received an honor from the Northeastern University Honors Program where she served as director for many years.

During her time as Director of the University Honors Program at Northeastern University, Kramer worked to “reimagine the program” by creating new learning and co-curricular experiences for students and diversifying and internationalizing the program.

The program allows students and faculty to come together and try new forms of educating, learning, and programming.

Laurie stepped away from the University Honors Program on June 30, 2022. Nearly a year later, she was invited to speak to the graduating Honors students at their Honors Cording Ceremony.

She was also surprised to learn the program created a new student award to be given annually in her honor: “The Laurie Kramer Award for Honors Interdisciplinary & Experiential Learning.”

For Laurie, she said this was a special, full-circle moment.

Congratulations to Laurie on this exciting honor and for all of the work she’s done for the University Honors Program over the years!
