The 94th annual meeting of the Midwestern Psychological Association will be held April 21 - 23, 2022. Once again, the venue will be the beautiful Palmer House Hilton, in Chicago, IL. Share your research, make new friends, and connect with psychological scientists from across the Midwest and the world.

We are currently planning an in person event, but we are monitoring the COVID-19 pandemic and will make adjustments accordingly. The situation changes quickly and our goal is to error on the side of caution; protecting the health of our attendees and community is our number one concern. For now, we suggest people plan for the in person conference and be prepared to adjust as needed. Please also note that MPA will be following local Chicago rules regarding mitigation efforts. Please check HERE for those updated rules which include mask wearing at all times when indoors, regardless of vaccination status, as well as vaccine requirements for many indoor activities.

The MPA program includes over a thousand research presentations from a broad range of disciplines, and features several keynote addresses and invited methodology workshops. MPA also hosts the meetings of Psi Chi (the psychology honor society for undergraduates), the Society for the Teaching of Psychology, and the Society for Community Research and Action. These meetings are held in the Palmer House Hilton at the same time as the MPA program.
