• Psychology Undergraduate Mentoring Program (PUMP)​

  • The Psychology Undergraduate Mentoring Program (PUMP) was formed to promote opportunities for undergraduates from historically underrepresented backgrounds to receive mentoring in the field of psychology. PUMP's mission is to allow undergraduates of historically underrepresented backgrounds to receive high-quality mentoring within the UGA Psychology Department towards successful preparation for graduate school and careers in psychology. A goal of PUMP also is to create a program culture that values the intentional visibility and accessibility of graduate and faculty mentors to undergraduate students while providing professional development opportunities and sharing knowledge of opportunities and resources needed to navigate and succeed in graduate school.


    PUMP was founded by graduate students across Psychology programs, including Dominique L. La Barrie, Kharine Jean, Kelsey Corallo, Lauren Quast and Andrew Farkas, as an effort to improve diversity and inclusion within the department.

    Dr. Metzger serves as a founding faculty supervisor for this new program.
