The Mott Community College Psi Beta Chapter is a second-time recipient of the national Psi Beta Honor Society in Psychology Chapter Excellence Award at the American Psychological Association (APA) 2019 conference. The award is based on chapter engagement activities that promote high impact learning experiences for students.

“Receiving this award for the second time in two years speaks to the outstanding work our faculty advisers Dr. Brian Littleton and Phillip Nulph have done to create high quality experience for our students,” said Dr. Mary Cusack, Dean of the Fine Arts and Social Sciences Division.

In addition to receiving the recognition, three MCC student Psi Beta members presented during a poster session. Students Jonathan McKay, of Flint, Alesiah Pickard-Banno, of Flint, and Calli Miller, of Grand Blanc, presented their work on "The Dark Triad and Workplace Behaviors." Student Jack Kelley, of Clio, also attended the conference.

“This was a great opportunity for our students to put their education into practice and network with professionals and other students in the field,” said Littleton. “The conference had had more than10,000 attendees, with 800 academic institutions represented, and 50+ countries represented,” he said.

Additionally, Dr. Littleton presented his work examining “The use of single subject time series analysis to understand the impact of the Flint Water Crisis on student graduation and retention rates at MCC” at a research symposium.

The MCC Psi Beta chapter was chartered in November of 2016. Psi Beta is open to any student who has earned a 3.0 or better in any Psychology class, has completed 12 credits at Mott, and maintains an overall G.P.A. of 3.25. Chapter members are eligible for national scholarships.

The mission of Psi Beta National Honor Society in Psychology is professional development of students at community colleges through promotion and recognition of excellence in scholarship, leadership, research and community service. The award goes to chapters that best achieve the mission of Psi Beta. Psi Beta is a member of the Association of College Honor Societies and an affiliate of the American Psychological Association and the Association for Psychological Science.
