Associate Professor of Psychology Erin O'Mara was featured on the popular radio program The Academic Minute explaining a research study she conducted with colleague Benjamin Kunz on bragging and modesty., BuzzFeed, Vanity Fair and the Associated Press featured comments from political scientist Christopher Devine on the Presidential Medal of Freedom.
