Heritage Initiative

Our Heritage Initiative honors the most esteemed 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 Heritage Wall. Our inductees are immortalized for their contribution to research, teaching, mentorship, and/or service and the lasting impact they have left on the science of psychology. If you know of someone who has had an important, positive impact on the field, consider honoring their hard work by nominating them for the Heritage Wall.

The funds accompanied by the nomination process are reserved for our Heritage Dissertation Research grants—another great way the Heritage Initiative, our honorees, and you can pay it forward for the future of personality and social psychology.
