Dr. Rosie Phillips Bingham, vice president of Student Affairs at the University of Memphis, has been named a Distinguished Elder by the National Multicultural Conference & Summit (NMCS). The award honors persons who have been pioneers in recognizing the importance of addressing multicultural issues in the field of psychology, its practice, theory, education and training. 

The letter of award calls Bingham one of the “courageous pioneers who challenged existing paradigms within the psychology” to bring that realization to the field.

The NMCS presented Bingham’s award at its conference in Houston earlier this month. The Distinguished Elder Award presentation is one of the highlights of the NMCS and has become a much-anticipated experience among conference participants, especially graduate trainees and early career professionals seeking wisdom from their Elders.

Bingham is also among the founders of the National Multicultural Conference and Summit, which was created a decade ago.

Bingham has been the vice president of Student Affairs since 2003. Prior to that, she was assistant vice president for Student Development. She has taught and served as an administrator at the U of M since 1985.
