TWU psychology honor society wins 2017 Building Bonds Collaboration Award

Texas Woman’s University students teamed up with students from University of Central Arkansas and Collin College to win the 2017 Alberta Johnson/Ruth Hubbard Cousins Building Bonds Collaboration Award. Students from the Texas Woman’s and University of Central Arkansas Psi Chi chapters, as well as the Collin College chapter of Psi Beta, were recognized for their collaborative workshop, titled “The Gritty Team: Passion, Purpose and Success,” which was presented at this year’s Southwestern Psychological Association Annual Conference in San Antonio.

The Building Bonds Collaboration Award acknowledges outstanding cooperation between Psi Beta chapters at community colleges and Psi Chi chapters at four-year universities. The TWU/UCA/Collin College project was selected by a panel of Psi Beta judges for its excellence in providing high-impact learning experiences to members through a combination of community service, leadership training, service learning and undergraduate research. Each participating chapter will receive a plaque in recognition of their outstanding achievements, and the Psi Beta chapter will receive a $100 check.

TWU’s Psi Chi chapter is a Department of Psychology and Philosophy student organization that recognizes and promotes excellence in the science and application of psychology. Members are actively engaged in community service, research, networking and publication initiatives.
