It is one of the most productive psychology departments in terms of research productivity, the number and quality of graduate students, the size and quality of our undergraduate program, and the level of external contract and grant support awarded. Advancing the traditions of innovative, basic, and applied scholarship allows us to recruit the best faculty and graduate students in the field, broadening the scope of our research while enriching both undergraduate and graduate education.
