Throughout the year, the Department of Psychology and its students present at several conferences.
Siouxland Research Conference (Formerly Siouxland Undergraduate Social Sciences Research Conference): At this conference, students from about five regional schools formally present their original research in psychology, social work, sociology, criminal justice and political studies. Presentations may be 10-15-minute PowerPoint presentations or posters (it takes about 10 minutes for researchers to present and explain their research posters).
Briar Cliff University Scholarship and Creative Works Convocation: The convocation is an opportunity for all Briar Cliff students to present their academic achievements to the Briar Cliff community. Students may present traditional research projects or creative new works individually or in groups.
Great Plains Students' Psychology Convention: This convention is designed to foster undergraduate development in a safe comfortable atmosphere, where undergraduates can receive great feedback from people in the field of psychology but outside of their respective universities.
Midwestern Psychological Association (MPA): Although the MPA Convention is nominally a regional organization, both their membership and the attendance at their meetings are national. The Annual Meeting is a major opportunity for psychologists in these many settings to keep in touch with current developments in research, theory and practice.
Convention of the American Psychological Society (APS): The APS Convention brings together psychological researchers and academics for an exciting program that covers the entire spectrum of innovative research in psychological science. APS is a professional conference for undergraduate students, graduate students and professionals to explore and share ideas within the field.
