Minnesota Professionals for Psychology Applied to Work 

Each month, I/O students travel to Minneapolis to attend the MPPAW conference. MPPAW benefits members through sharing ideas and information relevant to psychology as applied to work. Students have the opportunity to receive a mentor who is a current I/O professional, which in turn provides incredible insight and potential opportunities.

Society for Industrial Organizational Psychology

Each year, I/O students travel to attend the annual SIOP conference. SIOP is the membership organization for the science and practice of I/O psychology and represents district 14 of the American Psychological Association. Previous conferences have been held in Washington, D.C., Austin, TX, and will be in New Orleans in 2021.
