New: “Buddies Program" for Psychology Arizona Online Students

Oct. 20, 2018

In Spring 2018, Ashley Jordan, Assistant Professor of Practice and Director of Psychology’s Arizona Online, implemented a new program specifically designed for online Psychology students: The Buddies Program! The program was developed to allow students an opportunity to connect with each other and have an “accountability partner” to help each other stay on track with coursework. The Buddies Program is optional, however, research has shown that programs utilizing support partners or “buddies” increase an individual’s commitment to the program and overall success-rate compared to people without a “buddy.” For more information on our new buddy program, visit our website.
