She is a Fellow of the Royal Society of Canada and the recipient of many research and teaching awards, including the University of Alberta’s University Cup, for an outstanding record of excellence in both research and teaching.
Dr. McDaniel joins the U of L formally on July 1, 2009, as a Professor in the Department of Sociology, in addition to her five-year appointment as Prentice Institute Director. As well as being heavily involved in research, graduate education and research leadership, Dr. McDaniel will also contribute to the undergraduate teaching program at the University of Lethbridge.
