Crowd-Sourcing Science Project: Participate in CREP
All Psi Chi members should consider contributing a sample to the Collaborative Replications and Education
Project (CREP). The nine recommended studies are great projects for research
methods classes, senior research, or independent research. Also, Psi Chi and
the Center for Open Science now
offer small $200–500 CREP research awards. To participate this academic year,
contact Jon Grahe by February 15, 2014 at WesternVP@psichi.org.
We Need Your Help
for setting up the Psi Chi LinkedIn group is to connect alumni and
undergraduates to discuss items related to careers and the field of psychology.
This is a great place to maintain professional ties and give back to other Psi
Chi members looking for advice.
Help us get
to 5,000 LinkedIn members over the holiday break! Please go HERE and send a request to join our closed
group. If you’re already a part of the group, then please invite at least one Psi
Chi alumnus to join us. Thanks for helping us grow our community!
Don’t have a
LinkedIn profile, and wonder why you need one? A professional online profile is
the future of networking and job advancement. Even if you are not directly
contacted on LinkedIn, employers will review your credentials online. Don’t
miss out on connecting with Psi Chi members and future job opportunities.
