13th Annual

River Cities I-O (RCIO)

Psychology Conference

Understanding Climate and Culture @ Work

October 27-28, 2017

The Master’s of Science program in Industrial-Organizational (I-O) Psychology and the Department of Psychology at The University of Tennessee at Chattanooga are pleased to invite you to attend the 13th Annual River Cities I-O (RCIO) Psychology Conference in beautiful Chattanooga, TN October 27-28, 2017. The RCIO conference is a highly professional, yet student-friendly event focused on providing conference attendees with a positive and an encouraging conference experience. Conference evaluations from graduate student and professional attendees consistently indicate that RCIO is among the most positive and rewarding mini-conference experiences they have each year. We hope you will give RCIO a try this year for yourself; see what you think!

Each year, the RCIO conference is tailored to a particular theme relevant to I-O or more general applied psychology. The focus of the 2017 conference is on climate and culture theory, research, and practice within organizational settings (think broadly).
