Spelman will host an Undergraduate Psychology Summer Institute as part of an initiative to increase the number of minorities in the profession.

The six-week program, a partnership with Morehouse College and the University of Georgia, is designed to identify psychology majors who have an interest in attending graduate school and provide them with a research-based developmental summer experience. In addition to lab meetings, students will explore specialties, such as counseling psychology, sports psychology, social psychology, industrial organizational and animal behavior.
