Graduate Center Students, Faculty, and Alumni Take the Stage at the 2016 Eastern Psychological Association Conference

The CUNY community’s excellence was exemplified yet again at the 2016 Eastern Psychological Association Conference, where Graduate Center students, faculty, and alumni from the PhD Program in Psychology, the PhD program in Educational Psychology, and the CUNY Baccalaureate program presented original research in a wide range of areas in psychology including auditory and visual information, literacy, neurocognition, intimate relationships, learning methods, anxiety disorders, self-perception, gender, religion, climate change, statistical analysis, applied social psychology, adolescence, competitiveness, food choices, learning disorders, and more. 
Featured on the final morning was a symposium on student-centered pedagogy, held by a number of people from the graduate student teaching association.

This meeting of minds was held at the Marriot Marquis in Times Square, over three days and several stories of the building, clustered by topic. Presenters ranged from community college students, undergraduate students, graduate students, post-doctoral fellows, professors, and retired professors from all over the country, bringing an immense number of perspectives and experiences to light.  In attendance were thousands of members and affiliates of the eastern psychological association from all over the world. We wish to congratulate the presenters and commend them on their work.
