Public Engagement


The Psychology Public Engagement program leverages technology to communicate the results and real-world implications of faculty research to extension educators, community partners, volunteers, policymakers, and others in New York State and beyond. We involve students in research-public engagement activities, fostering learning opportunities for students while providing needed services in our communities. We also cultivate research-community partnerships, facilitating exchange and collaboration among researchers and stakeholders so that the tools that research produces are informed by and incorporated into practice in a significant way.
