Psychology, Service, Inquiry: PSI Talks

Do you have powerful ideas that are worth spreading? If so, here’s an opportunity to share those ideas as a PSI Talk!  The UWGB Psychology Program would like to invite you to apply to do a short, 8 to 10 minute, presentation on an aspect of psychology as part of PSI Talks, an event we are hosting on December 7th, 2015 at 7:00pm.  This event will include five engaging and thought provoking student and alumni presentations, followed by a reception.

Possible topic areas for talks might include:

  • a meaningful personal experience you have had that can be connected to psychological concepts
  • service you have done for the community or on campus that is connected to your psychology education (e.g., an internship or volunteer experience)
  • a way that you use psychology in your work or your career
  • a review of a psychological concept or literature and how it is relevant to everyday life
  • original research you have conducted as a Research Assistant, Honors Student, or in class

The PSI Talks will be held On Monday, December 7th, 2015 at 7:00pm in Fort Howard Hall of the Weidner Center.

To be considered, you must:

  • be a UW-Green Bay Psychology major or a graduate of the UW-Green Bay Psychology program,
  • submit a 200-word abstract describing your talk, and
  • provide the name of a UW-Green Bay Psychology faculty member who would be willing to endorse your talk and supervise your talk if you are selected.

Please email the following information to Dr. Ryan Martin (martinr@uwgb.edu) by 5:00 pm on Friday, October 16th.  We will then select semi-finalists who will meet with the selection committee for a brief interview the week of the October 26th.  The final presenters will be identified and notified that week.
