graduate colloquium

Graduate Colloquium

The Graduate Colloquium was established in Spring 2019 as a monthly departmental event. The event gives Master and PhD students the opportunity to present a research project at any stage of development, be it the first ideas and plans, a full-fledged proposal, a conference presentation (planned or already held), or a final paper from a graduate class formulating original ideas.

Psych In/ Psych Out

Psych In/Psych Out is an annual day devoted to community in a kind of double movement; “out” to others and our surrounding communities and “in” towards ourselves as a community of teachers and students. Faculty and students spend a day together and go “out” to a community and work there; around noon, we come back to Melson and share a community pot luck. The last two years, faculty and students have worked to nurture and plant UWG’s community garden, which raises vegetables as donation for the Carrollton community.
