Thanks to Applied Social Psychology Ph.D. ('97) alum, Dr. Jamie Goldenberg, for sharing her research with us today at the Department's Colloquium! She spoke to us about her research program focusing on applying Terror Management Theory to behavior health decisions.  Jamie also got to catch up with her dissertation advisor, Dr. Carol Sigelman!  Jamie is currently a Professor of Psychology at the University of South Florida.

Yesterday the department held a Declaration Day event and in five hours, we gained 25 new majors and 13 new minors. That's one declaration every eight minutes!

These include newly declared minors from students in the Milken Institute of Public Health, the Elliott School of International Relations, and the GW School of Business, demonstrating the department's reach beyond CCAS into other student populations of GW.

Thank you to Dr. Schell, Dr. Dopkins, and the students who assisted with completing paperwork, doling out goodie bags, and generally dispensing goodwill on the department's behalf!

Check out our amazing alum, Dr. Danielle Busby! She recently presented at Education Now Detroit, focusing on how trauma impacts students’ learning and she discussed how trauma can impact the brain, behavior, and ultimately student learning.
