Industrial/Organizational Psychology


Our industrial organizational psychology alumni helped build the foundation of a nationally recognized I/O program. As students they were dedicated to many continuous improvement efforts in the I/O program, on top of a rigorous course of study. Hard work and a sense of community don't stop when you walk across the stage to collect your graduate degree. Just ask our alumni who have taken those values into the workplace and forged successful careers in I/O Psychology. Please feel free to send your current employment information, a biography and picture to so that we can get you published and recognized for all your efforts in the I/O field!
