Chapter 1 Introduction
We are a student-led consulting group within the Industrial/Organizational Psychology program at Montclair State University, founded in 2019. We look at ourselves as hard-working, driven students who wish to strengthen MSU’s I/O Psychology program, as well as learn outside of the classroom to build upon our skills and knowledge. We pride ourselves with strong involvement in local and national I/O groups, namely METRO and SIOP.
What we do:
We are responsible for executing various projects. Our main project is developing an Engagement survey, which we wish to distribute to external organizations. We also run a mentorship program within the MSU I/O program, where we train most of the 2nd year graduate students to guide the new students into becoming successful students themselves. Additionally, we host a variety of events, such as new student orientation, networking opportunities, and casual hangouts.
As of Fall 2020, the ongoing projects that Eagle I.O manages include:
- a mentorship program between the 1st years and returning MSU I/O Masters’ and PhD program students,
- an engagement survey, and
- this student consultant manual (which includes, for example, a succession plan to sustain and grow Eagle I.O)
Future aspirations are to have Eagle I.O be a client-facing organization that can provide student-led solutions to external clients.
