The Oklahoma Christian University chapter of PSI CHI will host the conference in the Garvey Center on the campus of the Oklahoma Christian University in Edmond. The purpose of this conference is to give students and professionals across the state an opportunity to share ideas while furthering the development of psychology in Oklahoma. We therefore encourage all psychology students enrolled in Oklahoma colleges and universities to attend the conference and submit proposals for poster, paper, work-in-progress, and seminar presentations. This conference provides an excellent opportunity to meet and interact with other students and faculty in psychology from institutions across the state.
