EAST LANSING, MI (AP) – The American Psychological Association has honored a Michigan State University faculty member for her research and advocacy work for rape victims.

The East Lansing school says that the association’s Society for Community Research & Action has given psychology professor Rebecca Campbell its 2015 Award for Special Contributions to Public Policy.

Michigan State says that Campbell’s research “focuses on violence against women, specifically sexual assault.” It says her work examines “how the legal, medical and mental systems respond to the needs of rape survivors.”

She recently served as an independent evaluator for a federally funded study of why about 10,000 sexual assault kits went untested in Detroit.
