Lipsey wins Earl Sutherland Prize
Mark Lipsey was awarded the Earl Sutherland Prize for Achievement in Research at the fall faculty assembly for his contributions to education studies and the design of evaluation studies.
“Mark’s work is having a transformative effect on the quality of education in Tennessee,” said Chancellor Nicholas S. Zeppos. “He has produced seminal social science and public policy research on such topics as early childhood education and risk and intervention for juvenile delinquency and substance abuse.”
The Sutherland award comes with a $5,000 prize and the winner’s name is engraved on a silver bowl, which the winner keeps for a year.
Lipsey, director of the Peabody Research Institute, is currently helping to conduct a five-year $6 million study on the effectiveness of Tennessee’s prekindergarten program.
