Students, it’s a double cup of Coffee Chat!!! On Saturday, April 4th, the College of Doctoral Studies is hosting TWO Student Coffee Chats. Each chat is tailored to support students as we all focus on understanding the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic and seek ways to support others within this time of crisis.
Dr. Kelley Conrad and Dr. Herman van Niekerk have had their poster titled "Unreal or REAL Leadership? Choose Well!" accepted for the 31st Convention of the Association for Psychological Science (APS) to be presented May 23-26, 2019.
Over 400 participants attended the 2018 Knowledge Without Boundaries Research Summit. This virtual event allowed attendees to view dynamic presentations, engage in thought-provoking question and answer sessions, all while being comfortably situated in their own homes. Yes, it was a highly successful event! And, we are working to make the 2019 KWB Research Summit even better.
