Dr. Kenneth Bollen, a Henry Rudolph Immerwahr Distinguished Professor of Quantitative Psychology, has been selected to receive an Honorary Doctorate from Uppsala University.
Uppsala University is a world-class research university in Uppsala, Sweden, and was founded in 1477. The title of honorary doctor, doctor honoris causa, is conferred by Uppsala upon academics, primarily from abroad, who have established ties with Swedish academic researchers and who have done outstanding academic work. The faculty themselves confer honorary doctorates, not the University administration and this distinction has national scope. The honorary doctorate originated at Uppsala in 1839.

Uppsala University is the European epicenter of development in structural equation modeling and thus it is a significant honor for Dr. Bollen to be recognized through this mechanism. Dr. Bollen will travel to Uppsala in January 2019 for the award ceremony. Congratulations, Dr. Bollen!
