Honorary Doctorates


Edward Zigler
Child specialist, academic
Doctorate of Laws

Psychology professor Edward Zigler is the director of the Bush Center in Child Development and Social Policy at Yale University. He is a leading expert on the motivational determinants of children's performance and the influence of life circumstances on children's behaviour and development. Zigler designed a national program in the U.S., known as the School of the Twenty-First Century, to link child care and family support services to the public school system, which has been adopted by more than 600 schools. He worked with the State of Connecticut to establish quality school-readiness programs for low-income children. His research on subjects such as mental retardation, intervention programs for economically disadvantaged children and the effects of out-of-home care on the children of working parents has had a broad influence.
