Yuying Tsong, assistant professor of human services, will be honored next month with this year's Emerging Professional - Contributions to Service Award from the Society for the Psychological Study of Culture, Ethnicity and Race, a division of the American Psychological Association. The honor is given to "an individual who has made outstanding contributions in the promotion of ethnic minority issues within 10 years of graduation."

Tsong joined Cal State Fullerton in 2012 and holds a doctorate in counseling psychology from USC. Previously, she served four years as a clinical faculty member/research methodologist at Pepperdine University. She is currently studying the experiences of individuals who are or were "parachute kids," unaccompanied minors, particularly Asians, who are sent to study and live in the U.S. without one or both of their parents. She will be honored Aug. 8 during the American Psychological Association convention in Washington, D.C.
