Midwestern Regional Fall Letter

Dear Midwest Psi Chi members,

I hope you are all rested from the summer and in the rhythm of fall semesters. A special WELCOME to all new Psi Chi members! There are many great things happening in Psi Chi—more funding opportunities for students, new and exciting research opportunities. Please take a moment to look at some key Psi Chi deadlines/updates:

1. The 2015 Midwestern Psychological Association (MPA) submission deadline is November 11, 2014. Details on the MPA website will go live by the first of September. Psi Chi’s Distinguished Lecturer is Dr. Susan Fiske (Princeton University, NJ), a giant name in social psychology and social cognition. Make sure you can be there.

2. Is there something you want to see at MPA? I invite you to send me your suggestions to The steering committee will soon convene to discuss the program. Your MPA 2014–15 steering members are Jamie Simpson, PhD (Midland University, NE), Theresa Luhrs, PhD (DePaul University, IL), Diana Steakley-Freeman (Illinois State University), Olyvia Kuctha (University of Wisconsin–Green Bay), Kristin C. Flora, PhD (Franklin College, OH), and Mike Dudley, PhD (Southern Illinois University Edwardsville). We greatly appreciate their service.

3. Also consider participating in crowdsourcing research, which has benefits for students, faculty, and science. Psi Chi was an early proponent of crowdsourcing science, and we encourage you to participate in these three projects specifically developed for student involvement: CREP, IPP, and the Archival Project. CREP invites you to replicate published studies and provides monetary research awards for completed projects. IPP invites you to add samples of situational, behavioral, and personality predictors of situations. The Archival Project invites you to read and code published studies for basic hypotheses and effects. In each case, there are opportunities for authorship and networking for contributors. Participate as an individual, in a small group, or as a chapter.

Last but not least, make sure you join our Midwest Psi Chi Facebook community—a great place to post information, share programs, and get feedback or help from other chapters.
