As we all know, promoting student research is one of Niagara University’s hallmarks. Prof. Tim Osberg in the Psychology department asks for volunteers to complete surveys online. Anyone anywhere is welcome to participate.
Dr. Osberg's students hope to present findings at the Eastern Psychological Association convention in New York City in March 2013. They need to gather data by October 25 so they can analyze and write up findings.
