Xavier Students Perform Well at Psychological Convention

March 18, 2013

The annual conference of the Southeastern Psychological Association (SEPA) was held March 16 and 17. Xavier University made a very good showing.

The conference gave awards to the top ten out of 240 student submissions. Undergraduates at Xavier University received three of those ten awards. Christian End, PhD, associate professor of psychology at Xavier was named SEPA Mentor of the Year.

“The success of these students is a result of a tremendous amount of study and work by themselves and their faculty members,” says Mark Meyers, dean of the College of Social Sciences, Health, and Education. “That 30 percent of the awards at the conference went to Xavier students demonstrates the high quality of our students’ preparation and performance. Xavier supports its students conducting original research and provides them the opportunity to present at national conferences.”
