Regional Undergraduate Psychology Conference Here Nov. 6-7

September 4, 2009

The Lindenwood University Psychology Department will host the Fifth Missouri Undergraduate Psychology Conference (MUPC) on Friday, Nov. 6, and Saturday, Nov. 7. The event will feature a keynote address and presentations by students and alumni who have conducted research in the past year on a variety of topics within the field of psychology.

Henry L. Reodiger III, Ph.D., dean of academic planning and professor of psychology at Washington University in St. Louis, will deliver the keynote address. His presentation is titled, “How Retrieval Enhances Retention: Some Lessons for Educational Practice,” and covers human learning, memory, and retention.

Undergraduate students from colleges in Missouri and neighboring states will present on experimental research findings, study proposals, and applied learning experiences.

“An exciting part of this year’s conference is that all previous MUPC conferences have taken place in the western portion of the state,” said Michiko Nohara-Leclair, associate professor of psychology at Lindenwood. “Now that it’s here this year, we’re hoping to attract more schools from the eastern side of Missouri and increase the number of participating institutions.”

She also urged staff to attend the conference and to encourage their students to participate.

“If students are conducting research in related disciplines then they can take part,” she said. “It’s such a good experience and its right here on our campus so why not?”

The deadline to submit presentation proposals is Friday, Oct. 16. The early registration fee is $15. Those who wish to only to attend the conference can register on the day of the event for $20.

Roediger’s keynote address will take place from 11 a.m. to noon on Saturday, Nov. 7, in the Spellmann Campus Center. His presentation is part of the Lindenwood University Academic Speaker Series and is free and open to the public.
