Psychology Department News


Dear Faculty and students,

I am writing to let you know of some changes in the Department of Psychology. Some of you may know that Jim Choca decided to step down as Department Chair to return to faculty. He has served as Chair for 11 years and I am grateful for the phenomenal work he has done.

After discussions with the Dean of the College of Arts and Sciences, I have stepped into the role of Chair as of January 1, 2015. I look forward to working with all of you in this capacity.

In addition, Kim Dienes will serve in the role of PsyD Director. I look forward to her leadership of the program and am delighted that she has agreed to work in this role.

With these role changes, there have also been office changes. Dr. Choca is now in Gage 405K (Dienes' former office), Dr. Dienes is in Gage 405F (my former office), and I am in Gage 400D (Choca's former office).

There will be some transition as Dr. Dienes and I learn about our new roles, so I hope you will bear with us as we take on these new responsibilities. Please let me know if you have any questions or concerns.

Best regards,
Cami McBride

Psychology students conduct research on stress

Although stress is a familiar and frequent occurrence in everyone’s life, why is that some people seem to deal with high levels of stress with composure, while others struggle with daily hassles that most take for granted? That question is being investigated at Roosevelt University by students studying with Kimberly Dienes, an assistant professor of psychology and a licensed clinical psychologist.
