Our Heritage Initiative honors the most esteemed and honored individuals in the field of personality and social psychology. Students, colleagues, and friends are invited to nominate the name of a mentor they would like to honor to become a part of our Wall of Fame. Our inductees are immortalized for their contribution to research, teaching, or mentorship and the lasting impact they have left on the science of psychology. If you know of someone who has changed the field in a lasting way, honor their hard work by nominating them for the Wall of Fame.
The funds accompanied by the nomination processed are reserved for our Heritage dissertation research grants for PhD. candidates, another great way the Heritage Initiative, our Wall of Famers, and yourself can pay it forward for the future of our personality and social psychology.
