Department of Psychology Colloquium Series

Each semester, the psychology department hosts two or three colloquia, or research talks, featuring guest speakers from both in- and outside of the department.  Guest speakers provide a formal presentation on their current research, addressing a wide array of topics such as sources of interpersonal violence, effects of environmental toxins on cognitive/mental functioning, and factors affecting adolescent development.  Colloquium talks typically happen on some Friday afternoons at 3:00pm.  Specific information about talks for the current semester may be obtained in the main Psychology office, Waggoner 100 (ph. 309-298-1593) or by email at
