Edward de St. Aubin (PhD94), associate professor of psychology at Marquette University, recently received the university's highest teaching honor, the Rev. John P. Raynor, S.J., Faculty Award for Teaching Excellence. He is a graduate of the Human Development and Social Policy program at the School of Education and Social Policy.
De St. Aubin studies identity and meaning-making in adults, stigmatized groups and those suffering major life disruptions, such as a spinal cord injury. He brings those same ideas into the classroom by focusing on sharpening aspirations and making meaning for his students.
"I like being surrounded by young minds that are actively being transformed," said de St. Aubin. "The bottom line is I like teaching." He previously taught at Northwestern and the University of Wisconsin-Green Bay before joining the Marquette faculty.
Dr. de St. Aubin, a resident of Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, received both his bachelor's and master's degrees from Loyola University before earning his PhD from the Northwestern. De St. Aubin's scholarship has resulted in two published books and dozens of chapters and journal articles.
At Marquette, he teaches graduate and undergraduate courses in developmental psychology, personality psychology, research methods, human sexuality, psychology of culture and the narrative self.
