Michael Bradley   2010 Distinguished Service Award Recipient

Dr. Michael Bradley came to UNB in 1980.  Since then, he has engaged in not only scholarly work, 30 published articles, numerous conference presentations, the successful thesis supervision of over 30 honours and graduate students, but has also dedicated himself to making the Saint John campus and UNB as a whole, a better and thriving place for students, staff, and faculty.

Early on in his career he served as chair of the Division of Social Sciences from 1984 to 1990. During those years he championed not only his own discipline of Psychology but also the other disciplines within the division.  It was during this time frame that he played a key role in instituting the BSc major and Honours programs, along with establishing a Psychology GAU and a psychology MA program on the Saint John Campus.  He also served as chair of the Department of Psychology and was the driving force and major benefactor in the establishment of the Barbara Fisher Founder Prize in Psychology. 

Michael has been a vigorous champion of the Saint John Campus on the Board of Governors and as an active member of Senate.  Over the years his contribution has been a continuing one as evidenced by his membership on key campus committees, such as budget, curriculum, and assessment.  Michael’s devotion to his campus is also reflected in his numerous media commentaries, both local and national, in which he makes it clear that he is a proud member of UNB
