College of Education and Human Development

Mark Davison's many accomplishments include the creation of two endowed student assistantships, a $5 million federally funded interdisciplinary graduate training program, mentorship of students in a K-12 educational accountability center, and an online research symposium for faculty and graduate students involving five universities.

Davison has mentored students who have themselves gone on to become educators and active scholars in educational research around the country, and he literally wrote the handbook (still in use today) on how to get the most out of being a graduate student in the Department of Educational Psychology.

“For each of us, he was a ready consultant, a calm and clear adviser, and an always supportive and enthusiastic champion of our nascent ideas,” says a former student.

I have attempted to develop funding for students, a more coherent curriculum for our graduate programs, and unique research experiences unavailable at any other university in the world .--Mark L. Davison

One former colleague describes him as having an undying dedication to the improvement and rejuvenation of the training that graduate students receive, and “exemplary in his dedication to professional development,” challenging not only his students to bring out their best, but his colleagues and the department itself.

That dedication, in turn, has further enriched our world, sending bright and curious minds out into the field to do the same.

“I will always remember the mentorship that Dr. Davison shared with me,” says a former student. “I am reminded of it each time I engage in the research process with a student.”
