Congratulations to Dr. T for Winning the Departmental Teaching Award!

We’re so proud of Dr. T for winning this year’s Psychology Departmental Teaching Award – any of us who have been mentored or taught by Dr. Tomiyama know just how incredible she is! Whether it’s in a big lecture hall or a small seminar, in a lab meeting or a one-on-one meeting, Dr. T makes sure her students strive to be critical, creative thinkers, and she pushes us to be our best!

Dr. T, we appreciate you so much for all that you do for us, and we’re all delighted that you won this much-deserved award!

For UCLA Students Interested in Social Psychology!

Throughout the Winter and Spring quarter, the DiSH Lab has had the awesome opportunity to collaborate with Dr. Andrew Ward, Chair of Swarthmore College Psychology Department, during his sabbatical at UCLA. Now undergrads can take advantage of his time here too as Dr. Ward is teaching Social Psychology (Psychology 135) for Summer Session A, June 24-July 31. This is the first time UCLA has offered this course during the summer, and the only prerequisite is Introductory Psychology (Psych 10 or equivalent). Dr. Ward is a fantastic teacher, and he welcomes your emails if you would like more information:
