Student Seminar Series

For each seminar, one or two students present research which was conducted on- or off-campus. Offered roughly twice a month during the academic year, these talks are sponsored by the Psychology SEPC. Dates will be announced to majors by email and posted on the science division calendar on GrinnellShare (login required).

Grinnell College Psi Chi Chapter

The Grinnell College Psi Chi Chapter was installed in October of 2007. The chapter meets monthly, and each semester we induct eligible psychology majors. Members carry out service projects and support research in psychology.
