Letter from the Chair
Greetings from UW Psychology! The arrival of winter provides an opportunity to reflect with gratitude on the many accomplishments of this year, as well as plan for the opportunities ahead of us in the coming year.
The past year has been an exciting time for our department. Our undergraduate program continues to offer outstanding opportunities to our students, in the classroom with an array of exciting new courses, and in faculty labs with hands-on-opportunities to engage in research and community outreach. Our undergraduate major is thriving, and we have record numbers of students seeking to study in Psychology. We welcomed a new cohort of graduate students this fall, and with support from our community, we were able, for the first time, to offer every student a research development quarter to take a break from their teaching assistantships and pour themselves into their studies and research.
