GCC Psych. Students Make Great Showing at WPA Conference

In a recent feat of academic excellence, five psychology-student research teams from Glendale Community College (GCC) were selected to present research posters at the annual Western Psychological Association (WPA) convention in Vancouver, British Columbia, May 3-6. It is highly unusual for research by community college students to be accepted for presentation since they are competing against university students working on bachelors, masters, and doctoral degrees. Even psychology professors compete to have their research posters accepted for presentation. Four of the five GCC research teams were able to make the trip and present their research. Their research instructor and mentor, Dr. Sue Oliver, said, "I received numerous laudatory comments from attending professors regarding the high quality research conducted by GCC students, as well as their ability to answer penetrating questions relative to their findings." For more information about psychology at GCC, visit or call 623.845.3615.
