Message from the Chair

Bert Uchino

Bert Uchino, PhD

The spring marks the end of another successful, albeit challenging year for our department as COVID-19 redefined life for everyone.  The department navigated a number of challenges, including a need to switch all of our in-person courses online in a short time.  Thanks to the hard work of faculty, staff, and graduate students, we were able to do so and finish up the semester well.  More generally, despite all the challenges, I have been very impressed by the thoughtfulness and problem-solving of our collective whole during these uncertain times.

The Outreach Committee did a presentation on psychology as a science to high schoolers in Park City in the fall. They spoke on different areas in psychology and some of the different technologies being used currently.

Here are some of the photos from their trip:

The Department Says Goodbye to Craig and AnnaBelle Bryan

The department is sadly saying goodbye to Craig and AnnaBelle Bryan who will be leaving to take other positions.  Craig and AnnaBelle were doing important work with veterans and first responders and will be sorely missed for their many contributions to the department, university, and community.  We wish both of them the best as they pursue the next chapters in what I’m sure will be the continuation of incredible careers.
