September 2019

It’s time for our annual Year in Review! As we look back on each month of the academic year, the MSP community can reflect on the changes and growth we have experienced since September, both individually and as a community. Here’s a look at highlights from September 2019.

Other Highlights from September:

MSP was delighted to welcome Jim Maher, PhD in a new position as Clinic Director at the Michigan School Psychological Clinic.

Chris Corbin (PsyD 2) and Mackenzie Glaros (PsyD 2) presented the first Research Brown Bag session of the year, “Using Publicly Available Data.”

IDEA hosted the first Community Conversation of the year on September 25. A new tradition started by IDEA in 2018, Community Conversation hours are held throughout the year to provide the MSP community a safe space in which to process important issues, topics, and current events related to multicultural psychology, diversity, and inclusion. 

President Brown accepted a proclamation from Farmington Hills Mayor Ken Massey on behalf of the Farmington Hills SAFE (Suicide Awareness for Everyone) Taskforce in honor of Suicide Prevention Awareness Month. 

Blogs: Jared Boot offered a Student Experience: How Do I Start a Research Project?, we promoted Michael Kimball’s “Lessons from our Alumni” lecture, we celebrated that Michelle Justice (PsyD 3) won a Psi Chi Scholarship, and we welcomed Dr. Jim Maher.
