Notes on SIOP
This past year's annual Society for Industrial and Organizational Psychologists was held in sunny San Diego, CA. Being present at this annual event offers a wide opportunity to students, professional and practitioners to mingle with the "crème de la crème"! Here is what one student, new to the experience, had to say about his visit to SIOP.
Notes on Open House at Roya's
n Nov 11, 2001 Roya hosted the annual fall party for the I/O students, faculty, alumni's and friends. Following is the perspective of one of last years new student.
faculty in a friendly atmosphere. The party gave us the opportunity to meet many new faces in our field and, most importantly, it brought everyone together in a social gathering rather than in a meeting or a classroom. The second best thing about the party was definitely the food! With so many people bringing so many different things, the party had quite a spread. I remember myself and my fellow first-year students toasting to the fact that we would stick it out, no matter how difficult or stressful graduate school became. Every one of us will have the opportunity to do the same again this year.
Notes on Orientation
rientation is an exciting day for everyone and not even the rain gods could spoil our fun! Here are the experiences of some of the new students.

us at ease & helped us get oriented to life at IIT. The evening ended with an informal gathering, which gave us an opportunity to mingle with the alumni & faculty over refreshments -providing us with insights into the corporate sector here in Chicago.
From the desk of
his year we have good news and bad news from the program. The good news is that our presentation at SIOP was quite impressive. Number of papers that had IIT affiliation was 17. Three of our students presented by themselves. As you may have noted, we have had collaborations between faculty, alumni and students demonstrating the strong bond in the I/O program's family. Another great news is that Dr. Scott Morris was tenured and promoted to Associate Professor rank, please join me in congratulating him. As you all will agree it is our pride and pleasure to have him with us. We are also very happy to welcome Dr. Dan Lezotte as a visiting assistant professor in the program for the coming year. Dan has been a founding principal at Organizational Strategies, Inc. (March 1996 to present). Prior to that he was Vice President and Principal at OEC, Organizational Effectiveness Consultants (1990 thru 1996). Prior to that, he was as Assistant Vice President in the Human Resources Department at Lincoln Financial Group (1984 thru 1990). This all equates to 6 years of internal company experience and 11 years of consulting. We are happy that Dan accepted to join us at IIT as a visiting assistant professor. Now, for the bad news, as by now many of you know, Dr. Sylvia Roch has left our program and Dr. Tony Paquin will be leaving next semester. We are sorry to lose such capable and devoted colleagues, and we wish them best of luck in their future endeavors. We have permission to hire a junior and a senior faculty member this year. The advertisement for the positions is already posted, and we look forward to our new additions.
I would also like to thank individuals, who have been very helpful in various ways. We thank Steve Steinhaus for his continued support, including providing us with internship positions, thereby developing the professional lives of our students and speaking at one of the internship meetings. Eleni Speron's and Jennifer Langel's hard work in organizing a meeting at Ameritech, for the internship class, is greatly appreciated. Our sincere thanks go to Amy Larmore-Daniels for her talk at the Internship Meetings. Melanie Anderson's presentation at the Internship Meeting was very impressive and we greatly appreciate her support and enthusiasm. Finally, I would like to recognize the endless time and effort of our I/O program's alumni, in their contribution to the program through financial means, and their time spent working for the College of Psychology.
As a last note, I am losing touch with some of you, due to change in jobs or addresses. Please send me a note or give me a call, it is always great to hear from you. Also, you know that I collect your business cards so please send me updates.
Have a great productive year!
P.S. Don't forget your program and help us connect with all the alumni. So if you meet an alumnus through work, please get their address, phone number, and a business card and send it to me. It is our care and pride for each other and their achievement that makes us unique!
