Organizational Psychology Program Faculty

The OP programs’ primary goal is to develop highly resourceful, values-based practitioners who acquire the depth and breadth of competencies required to apply theory, state-of-the-art research, and practice to real world challenges faced by today’s global organizations. Faculty are committed to fulfilling this goal through curriculum design, scholarship, role modeling, expertise, professional socialization, and by providing students with opportunities for personal and professional growth. The faculty, as academics and practitioners, bring practical experience to their teaching, welcoming and appreciating the experience and multiple perspectives of all students.
