Classes for Summer 2023

PSY 363: Evolutionary Psychology

PSY 498: Seminar in Psychology


Glenn’s Summer 2023 Office hours

Hours will generally be held virtually via WebEx. Specific dates/time slots are demarcated below. (all times are Eastern Time)

Thursday, June 8, 2-4pm

Thursday, June 15, 2-4pm

Thursday, June 22, 2-4pm

Thursday, June 29, 2-4pm

Thursday, July 6, 2-4pm

Thursday, July 27, 2-4pm

Note that I do not take appointments but, rather, my hours are “walk-in” / first-come, first serve. You may have to wait a little bit, but I always make sure to get to everyone. Also note that as my hours are “walk-in,” please do NOT email me ahead of time asking if it is OK to meet. The answer is always YES to that query–so you can simply assume the answer is YES. Given the volume of email that I get, it is in your interest to simply stop by as opposed to contacting me days ahead of time and waiting for me to say that it is OK. If my hours are posted, I’ll be there!

Note also that I do not use Starfish or BrightSpace or any other software package for scheduling my hours. As stated above, they are “walk-in”–and I make a point to make every effort to get to all who are needing to meet with me. 

To meet with me remotely during my hours, please do the following:

  1. First, EMAIL ME to let me know that you are about to enter my WebEx waiting room (this email must come DURING my office hours). Join my WebEx room during my  hours. You will start in the “waiting room” and I will add you in when there’s an opening. 
  2. If that is not feasible, we can FaceTime or just have a phone call. If this is best for you, please email me DURING MY OFFICE HOURS to let me know and we’ll figure it out.*

Evolution is nothing more than a “statistical bias in the rate of perpetuation of alternatives.” G. C. Williams (1966, p. 22).

“Even though the cavemen don’t seem like they were having much fun, I bet they were!” M. Geher (2012).
