Colloquium Series

This series brings students, faculty, and the Bucknell community together to discuss research in progress and hear talks by visiting scientists. It is sponsored by the psychology department, Psi Chi, and the University Lectureship Committee (and sometimes others). All interested members of the community are welcome to attend. Light refreshments are served and a short reception after each talk offers the opportunity to chat with the speaker.

For questions or more information about the speakers or series, please contact Kevin Myers and/or Aaron Mitchel, coordinators of the Psychology Colloquium series.
