College of Science Commitment to Building Family-Friendly Workplaces

Supporting employees by finding ways to balance work with personal and family commitments benefits the College of Science in many ways. These efforts increase effectiveness, help retain highly qualified employees, and build a positive workplace environment. The College of Science is committed to providing workplace flexibility for employees while maintaining high standards of performance, as well as, to whatever extent possible, an employee’s income. In addition, we are committed to implementing family-friendly practices and ensuring that information regarding employee resources is shared broadly and regularly.  Information on resources for managing work/life responsibilities, as well as a guide to flexible work arrangements can be found here:

Welcome to UA Psychology!

Everything we do in Psychology is relevant to promoting health – understanding the basic circuitry of the mind and brain, promoting successful development and aging, and exploring the social, cultural and environmental factors that influence behavior.  Our faculty and students are creating innovative solutions to important problems that range from depression, Down syndrome, and Alzheimer’s disease to social problems like stereotyping, cultural bias, and family violence.  By partnering with the community, we’re finding new ways to promote healthy lifestyles among people of all ages.  
It’s an exciting time for the Psychology Department, with new world-class researchers joining our faculty this year, new state-of-the art research facilities being built, and a new Bachelor of Science major in Psychological Science – it’s not a surprise that we’re one of the top-ranked psychology departments in the country.     
It’s my pleasure to welcome you to UA Psychology and introduce you to the people, places, and events that are the life of our department.  For the latest updates and news, check out our department newsletter or our facebook page.

Lee Ryan, Professor and Head
