Scott Plous, professor of psychology, was elected to a three-year term as a council member of the Society for the Psychological Study of Social Issues (SPSSI). The council is the governing board of the Society.
Founded in 1936, SPSSI is a group of over 3,000 scientists from psychology and related fields and others who share a common interest in research on the psychological aspects of important social and policy issues. In various ways, SPSSI seeks to bring theory and practice into focus on human problems of the group, the community, and nations, as well as the increasingly important problems that have no national boundaries.
