Faculty Research & Professional Activities

Students at CSPP have access to one of the largest academic communities in the behavioral sciences. Across our programs, faculty are engaged in applied research that improves professional services, influences policy and changes lives. CSPP faculty are active in their respective professions, presenting their research and serving in professional association leadership roles.

This level of engagement provides CSPP students with opportunities to become connected to their professional communities and gain valuable research and presentation experience—co-authoring papers with faculty, presenting posters and serving in leadership roles in student divisions of professional associations.

The contributions of the CSPP community are extensive, spanning multiple areas of the discipline. Below is a small sample of the honors our faculty have received and the leadership roles in which they have served. These individual honors reflect our institutional values, our commitment to social justice and our passion for advancing the behavioral science professions. We maintain a detailed list of faculty, student and alumni accomplishments on the CSPP Blog.
