SPSP member Dr. Lisa Neff was featured in a recent issue of “Setting the Record Straight on ‘Wasteful Research’”, a series by the Consortium of Social Science Associations (COSSA) which provides researchers whose work has been mischaracterized by lawmakers the opportunity to set the record straight about their work’s value and potential, as well as to confront misconceptions about federal government-funded social science research.
A new non-academic internship database for social and personality psychology students was one of the many new projects that was approved for funding at the August meeting of the SPSP Board of Directors in Denver. The initial stages of the project will include surveys of various SPSP constituent groups, followed by the assembly of non-academic internships as a web tool for students. The project is being overseen by SPSP Board Member Linda Skitka and three of her students (Brittany Hanson, Timothy Carsel, and Allison Mueller) leading various phases of the project. Other take-aways from  the meeting:
