Psi Chi Distinguished Lecture

Identity Development in College Students: Can One Random Comment From a Professor Change a Life?

Can one casual remark by a professor to a student transform a student’s identity and alter the course of his or her life? Based on an analysis of narratives written by samples of university alumni and psychology faculty, the answer is a tentative yes. This talk will explore the timing, types, meanings, and mechanisms of these brief, but transformative moments.
