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 participate in the 16th Annual River Cities I-O (RCIO) Psychology Conference. This year's event will be the first ever virtual conference, due to campus restrictions and general health guidance preventing large groups like ours from congregating this fall on campus. Look for more details on how we will be delivering content and sharing our posters etc. as we get closer to the conference dates listed agove. 

Despite this year's virtual reality, the general structure of the conference will follow the normal format. Our topical theme for this year is building and sustaining 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. You can also get a sense for the feel and experience of RCIO by reading a letter of support written by Dr. Paul Muchinsky (click here).
