16th Annual

River Cities I-O (RCIO)

Psychology Conference

Building and Sustaining Psychologically and Physically Safe Work Environments

October 23-24, 2020

All of us here in UTC's Industrial-Organizational (I-O) Psychology M.S. degree program are pleased to invite you to the 16th Annual River Cities I-O (RCIO) Psychology Conference. This year's event will take place on the UTC campus in beautiful Chattanooga, TN on October 23 and 24, 2020. Our topical theme for this year is psychologically and physically safe work environments. In keeping with RCIO tradition, we will be exploring many aspects of this thematic domain.  

The RCIO conference is a highly professional, yet student- and practitioner-friendly event that provides a positive, encouraging, and up-to-date applied educational experience. Our objective is to make the RCIO Conference Series the most rewarding mini-conference experience you can have each year. Learn more about this conference series by exploring this website and our archives.
