Psychology Centennial Celebration

2016 Centennial Guest Lecture Series

On Friday April 29th, 2016, Six of our alumni and previous faculty members joined us as part of a Lecture Series to present their current research and celebrate our 100th year as an established department at The University of Kansas. This event was attended by alumni, friends, faculty, students and the greater KU community. The Psychology Department was honored to be visited by so many friends, old and new. To see the full listing of the Lecture Series that took place, you may download our flyer [PDF].
