Westminster Faculty Forum Continues with Discussion on Group Dynamics

Dr. Jamie McMinn, an assistant professor of psychology at Westminster College, will present "Sometimes You Feel Like a Group, Sometimes You Don't: Managing the Discrepancy Between Actual and Perceived Group Integration" at Faculty Forum Wednesday, Nov. 17, at 11:45 a.m. in the Sebastian Mueller Theater located in the McKelvey Campus Center.

 "Groups vary not only in how integrated they actually are, but also in how integrated they are perceived," McMinn said.  "This talk will highlight why groups would want to seem more or less integrated than they actually are; how they can alter their perceived integration; and why these perceptions matter."
Faculty forum, established in 1990, serves as a venue for the exchange of ideas and information among Westminster College faculty.  Speakers present their research, teaching ideas, lectures, performances, special programs, and uses of technology to keep faculty informed about the work of colleagues from many disciplines."

 McMinn, who came to Westminster in 2003, earned his undergraduate degree from Emory & Henry College, and his master's and Ph.D. from the University of Pittsburgh.

 The event is free and open to the public  For more information, contact McMinn at (724) 946-7121 or e-mail
