Gina BessingDanielle Mensing

Psychology majors, Gina Bessing and Danielle Mensing have been selected to participate in the Clinton Global Initiative University 2014.

Psychology plays a major role in solving individual, social, industrial and national problems, and in improving the quality of our lives, yet few among us really understand psychology's breadth. Many think of psychology only as it relates to mental illness.

Mental illness is an important area for psychological research and practice, but psychology is much more than that; psychology is the science of how we behave - and why we behave in certain ways.

As a science, psychology encompasses research on behavior on many very different levels -- from the reaction of the human eye to different colors and intensities of light, to the study of how individuals form opinions, to developmental stages in children, to the behavior of groups of people.
