SDSU management professor, Dr. Beth Chung, was recognized by the Society for Industrial and Organizational Psychology (SIOP) as an SIOP fellow for her academic research, teaching and service to the organization. SIOP fellowships are bestowed only on “distinguished industrial and organizational psychologists who have made an unusual and outstanding contribution to the field.”

SIOP represents academics, psychologists, researchers and other professionals who contribute to the field of psychology in the workplace. Specifically, SIOP members research and document workplace issues facing individuals, teams and organizations as it applies to business and society.

Only those SIOP organization members who are nominated and endorsed by a minimum of three standing SIOP fellows are eligible for fellowship.

“It is a privilege to be chosen for this distinction,” said Chung. “I’ve long admired the work of many of the SIOP fellows as they are some of the top researchers in industrial/organizational psychology and to join in their ranks is an amazing honor.”

Chung earned her Ph.D. at the University of Maryland, College Park and has served on the management faculty of the Fowler College of Business since 2000. She is a noted expert on the topics of diversity and inclusion in the workplace and is the co-founder and director of SDSU’s Institute for Inclusiveness & Diversity in Organizations
