Outreach to our Sister University

In late May, UW Tacoma's undergraduate Psychology Club visited the Department of Psychology. UW Tacoma students were able to meet with staff, faculty, and graduate students to talk about research and graduate studies.  The daylong event involved visits to Dr. Liliana Lengua’s 1-2-3 Go! lab, Dr. Sapna Cheryan’s Stereotypes, Identity, & Belonging Lab (SIBL) , and the Department of Psychology Clinic. Undergraduate advisors Vicky Burke and Tracy Maschman Morrissey provided a presentation called “Applying to Graduate School” and answered questions. Director of Graduate Training, Dr. Nancy Kenney, gave the “real” graduate school talk, which left everyone in the room motivated!  The visit coincided with the UW Undergraduate Research Symposium which was a fantastic way of showing research in action at the undergraduate level. We hope to be able to host additional visits from both UW Tacoma and UW Bothell in the future.
