Diversifying Psychology Weekend

About the Program

Have you ever wondered how you become or what you could do as a professional psychologist? Do you find yourself wanting to learn about research in psychology, or how you could use psychology to better your community and contribute to a more equitable society? We, members of the Department of Psychology, value diversity, inclusion, and equity because the goal of psychology is to improve understanding and outcomes for all individuals. We are pleased to host our fourth annual Diversifying Psychology Weekend on Saturday, May 7th, 2022 from 10:00am - 1:30 pm EST. The event will be held virtually.

The goal of the event is to help students from underrepresented and diverse backgrounds learn more about research and graduate school in psychology, prepare to apply for a doctorate in psychology, network with graduate students, and faculty, and learn more about what our department has to offer you. We especially encourage students to attend who are early in their college career and/or who are less familiar with doctoral degrees in psychology.

This event is supported by Miami University's Psychology Department, College of Arts and Sciences, and Graduate School, and Center for Student Diversity and Inclusion.
