Undergraduate psychology conference to feature diverse research

The 2022 Cornell Undergraduate Psychology (CUP) Conference will bring together undergraduate students with diverse psychology interests to share their research, meet other students and faculty, and learn about the various kinds of psychological research being conducted across the Cornell campus.

The conference will be held May 12 from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m. in Martha Van Rensselaer (MVR) Hall. Talk presentations will take place in MVR G151 and G155 from 3 p.m. to 5 p.m. The poster session and reception will follow in the MVR Commons from 5 p.m. to 6 p.m.

This year’s CUP Conference will feature 35 undergraduate students whose research highlights the breadth and diversity of the psychological research being conducted across departments and disciplines at Cornell. Students will present on various topics, from implicit bias in person perceptions to early-life adversity in prairie voles.

“The CUP conference is a true capstone experience for the many undergraduate researchers at Cornell doing psychological research with our faculty members. CUP provides a unique opportunity for honors students across campus—mainly in human development and psychology—to showcase their efforts under the guidance of their faculty mentors,” said Felix Thoemmes, associate professor of psychology in the College of Arts and Sciences and the College of Human Ecology (CHE).
