Letter from the Department

Welcome to the eighth edition of our department newsletter! We want to say a special welcome to our incoming class of 2026 students and a warmhearted goodbye to our class of 2022 graduates from the Department of Psychology.

As we all are welcoming the fall 2022 semester, we are looking forward to seeing more and more department activities return to in-person events. The Department of Psychology — students, faculty, and staff alike — has demonstrated remarkable resilience in facing all the challenges of the pandemic, and we are extremely proud. Our students made exceptional degree progress last semester; our faculty worked to develop new teaching strategies and fostered meaningful relationships with students; and our staff have been vital providers of support, keeping the department operations moving forward.

In particular, our faculty, graduate students, and undergraduate students involved in research labs have made impressive contributions to our missions of research, scholarship, and creativity not only last semester but over the summer as well. We had faculty and graduate students representing our department at national conferences hosted by well-known organizations such as the Society for Research in Adolescence, the Society for Judgement and Decision Making, the Society for Industrial and Organization Psychology, the Psychometric Society, and many more. In addition, members of our faculty were awarded grants, and as always, our faculty and graduate students published research articles in academic journals. Congratulations on all of the academic accomplishments they have made!

We want to thank all of you for your continuous support of the Department of Psychology! Your investment in resources for psychology students and faculty provides them with the support they need to further their research and development, putting them in a better position to make a difference in the lives of others. In this way, your gift encourages the next generation of practitioners and researchers to realize their potential. We greatly appreciate your thoughtful consideration of giving to the Department of Psychology at the University of Oklahoma.

We encourage you all to stay connected with our department through our social media accounts: Instagram, Twitter, Facebook, and LinkedIn.

In closing, Boomer Sooner, Live on, University, and we wish you and your loved ones

the very best.
