Cognitive Forum Speaker Series

The Division of Behavioral & Organizational Sciences is proud to announce this semester’s Cognitive Forum speaker series. Formerly the Cognitive Lunch Brown Bag series, these meetings began in 1970 when cognitive psychology faculty members began congregating over lunch to discuss research. Now entering its fifth decade, the series has grown into a long-standing tradition featuring alumni, impressive guest speakers, and graduate student research presentations. Cognitive talks are regularly scheduled every Friday at 4:00 pm. The program for the semester is announced every fall and spring. For more information, contact Kathy Pezdek at kathy.pezdek@cgu.edu.
