Using the resources we have for community outreach: A community engagement assignment for graduate and undergraduate I-O students
Industrial and Organizational Psychology: Perspectives on Science and Practice

Psychology professors Janet L. Kottke and Kenneth S. Shultz wrote in a paper they published, “ … we offer a modest but scalable mechanism for ‘getting the word out’ about I-O psychology. The impetus for the assignment detailed below came from Society for Industrial and Organizational Psychology (SIOP) President Tammy Allen’s final speech at the 2014 SIOP Annual Conference. In this speech, she suggested, among other things, that as I-O psychologists, we need to commit to doing more to make the discipline more visible (Allen, 2014, p. 8). Rogelberg et al. (2022).”

Report: Hate crimes increased in several major U.S. cities in 2022

From New York to Los Angeles, hate crimes continued to rise in major American cities last year, with preliminary police data showing that at least six metropolitan areas recorded levels not seen since the 1990s.

That's according to a new report by the Center for the Study of Hate and Extremism at California State University, San Bernardino.
The unpublished report, based on data from 20 police departments, was exclusively shared with Voice of America and comes months before the FBI is due to release its annual hate crime report for 2022.

Brian Levin, director of the research center, said while national hate crime trends generally mirror those of big cities, his data show a more modest uptick of 1.2% for the 20 cities surveyed.

"If current data hold, the FBI report is likely to be up when compared to the incomplete report for 2021," Levin said.

Brian Levin, director of CSUSB’s Center for the Study of Hate and Extremism, was one of the experts interviewed for an article examining why hate crimes are undercounted.

Most law enforcement agencies that participate in sending data for the FBI’s annual hate crime report “send in a form that says ‘zero,’” said Brian Levin, a professor of criminal justice and director of the Center for the Study of Hate and Extremism at California State University, San Bernardino.
