    Rebecca Ashare.

    PhD in Clinical Psychology, UB

    Associate Professor, Higher Education

    “After spending almost 10 years as faculty in the Department of Psychiatry at the University of Pennsylvania Perelman School of Medicine, I am excited be back ‘home’ and a faculty member in the Department of Psychology at UB. The training I received at UB, both in formal coursework and in applied experience, provided the foundation I needed to establish a successful research career. 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, write grants and manuscripts, and mentor undergraduates. I am grateful for the chance to do the same for my students at UB and hope to provide the same opportunities and supportive environment I had as a graduate student to encourage them to develop their own independent clinical research careers." – 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
