Rebecca Ashare

PhD in Clinical Psychology, UB

Assistant Professor, Higher Education

“As an Assistant Professor in the Department of Psychiatry at the University of Pennsylvania Perelman School of Medicine, the vast majority of my time is spent conducting research. The training I received at UB, both in formal coursework and in applied experience, provided the foundation I needed to be successful at Penn. I had the opportunity to design and run experiments, collaborate among teams of researchers, assist with a clinical trial from the very beginning through the analysis phase, build a psychophysiology lab, write grants and manuscripts, and mentor undergraduates. If you’re looking for a program that will provide the opportunity to interact with faculty who are leaders in their fields and encourage you to grow into an independent clinical researcher, all in a structured yet supportive environment, then UB is for you." – Rebecca Ashare

BA in Psychology and Studio Art, UB

Masters (MSW) Student, Social Work

“As a psychology major at UB, I took advantage of the many opportunities and courses available. I became a member of Psi Chi—The International Honors Society, a teaching assistant for an introductory psychology course, a research assistant for a psychology lab, and a tutor for various courses. The Department of Psychology staff and my fellow psychology majors created a learning environment that was both enriching and supportive. With the encouragement of various professors and advisers, I was able to challenge myself and dream big.”  – Neaha Aamir
