Psychology Faculty Members Featured in Regional Campuses Newsletter … The Psychology Research Team, the brainchild of Drs. Karen Mottarella and Shannon Whitten, fosters a culture of scholarly inquiry among students and demonstrates the professors’ commitment to student research as a part of undergraduate coursework. They meet regularly with student research assistants and Honors in the Major (HIM) students to conduct empirical research. Dr. Karen Mottarella is a licensed clinical psychologist who joined UCF’s faculty in 1998. Her research areas include the psychology of women and the scholarship of teaching and learning. As the founding psychology faculty member at UCF Palm Bay in 2001, she recalls, “We held office hours in the library while our building was being built!” Dr. Mottarella’s commitment to excellence has been recognized multiple times by the university: University Faculty Award for Excellence in Academic Advising in 2002, Teaching Incentive Award (TIP) for excellence in undergraduate teaching in 2006, and Scholarship of Teaching and Learning Award (SoTL) in 2007.

Dr. Shannon Whitten received her Ph.D. in Cognitive Psychology at the University of Memphis in 2003. Her research interests are in Psychology of Language; specifically, how language use in various media affects cognitive and psychological processing. On the importance of mentoring, she said, “There is nothing more important or rewarding to me than helping the next generation of students achieve their goals. Through undergraduate mentoring we not only have the opportunity to train students in research and scholarship; we also are able to facilitate confidence, critical thinking, and social awareness . . .” According to Department Chair Dr. Bob Dipboye, “Drs. Whitten and Mottarella have done an amazing job in developing the undergraduate program as seen by their initiation of a chapter of the Psychology honor society (Psi Chi) at UCF Palm Bay and the many students they have involved in conference papers and presentations . . . Dr. Mottarella also serves as the faculty coordinator for the forensics certificate which Psychology offers, in conjunction with several other departments. “ Dr. Alvin Wang, head of the honors program notes, “Drs. Karen Mottarella and Shannon Whitten are committed to offering their students the best possible undergraduate experience. Their dedication is not only evident in the classroom, but also in their labs where students are actively engaged in the pursuit of new psychological knowledge . . .” Alumnus Ashley Harper said, “This research program had a huge impact on me . . . After my first semester at UCF, I was selected to join the research team. With HIM, I was able to start working on my undergraduate thesis and was guided through the whole research process. I won First Place at the Showcase of Undergraduate Research. My presentation was also accepted for a special Interactive Poster Session at the Southeastern Psychological Association conference. We are currently working together to publish the results of my study.” The quality of the mentoring given in this research program is evident based on the number of awards and juried presentations or publications. Palm Bay students have won and placed in the university-wide Showcase of Undergraduate Research (SURE) award program in 2008, 2009, and 2010. Further, honors students have presented their honor’s related research at the Southeastern Psychological Association Conference, Annual Society for Industrial and Organizational Psychology (SIOP) Conference, and the Statewide Faculty Symposium on Undergraduate Research , and were published in CyberPsychology &Behaviour.

Our campuses “adopted” 25 former foster children and their babies or toddlers for this holiday. . When the Director of Connected by 25 came to pick up the donations she said she was so surprised and touched by our generosity. She said that the children are really looking forward to the gifts and that they will be so excited. We were able to give each child clothing and toys, and we provided small gifts for the parents as well. The “LIFESIZE” stockings were packed (see picture) with many much-needed items. A decorated tree was donated to their Christmas party by one of our employees and was given to one of the foster kid parents at the end of the party.

Saying Goodbye to Lynn For the past 12 years, Lynn Mitchell has been a much loved fixture on the Cocoa campus. From her start as a student assistant in Engineering to her later role as gatekeeper for Advising, Lynn’s kind and generous spirit brought smiles to the faces of students, faculty and staff alike, and if you had a question about a little tidbit of trivia, she would always know the answer. As part of her Mexican themed retirement party, large quantities of staff provided dishes were consumed and much laughter was shared. There was a different kind of beginning to this very special party. Dr. Dan “The Magic Man” Ezell, an Education professor, performed a magic show for the staff’s entertainment. Dr. Ezell also provided a delicious cake and beautiful floral arrangements. Lynn, you will be much missed on campus, and we hope you find great pleasure in your retirement!

College of Nursing Greetings from the UCF College of Nursing (CON), Cocoa Campus. We have been very busy in our third semester, meeting demands for a full class load and clinical rotations. Our clinical rotations were held at Holmes Regional Medical Center in Melbourne for: Pediatrics, Obstetrics & Gynecology, and Labor & Delivery; and Palm Bay and Parrish Hospitals for Adult I. We’d like to thank all of our clinical instructors for working so hard to provide such an excellent learning experience. Our group has been actively participating in the community at such events as: the VA Stand Down in Titusville on September 18, 2010 for Brevard’s Veterans and homeless, The Step Up for Down Syndrome Walk in Cocoa Village on October 23, 2010, and Light Up the Night, in support of the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society on Saturday, November 13, 2010. Our local chapter of the UCF Student Nurses Association (SNA) has also been very busy, planning fund raisers, community participation events, and budgeting for the big National Convention in Utah in April 2011. Upcoming events include a Christmas Party, Adopting a Study-Buddy from the incoming class, and a Christmas Toy Drive for the Holmes Regional Medical Center’s Pediatric Unit. Our campus achieved 100% registration at the FNSA convention in Daytona Beach October 28-29, 2010, and many positive comments were heard about this experience.

By far, it seems unanimous that the most inspirational speaker at the convention this year was Dr. Sally Karioth from FSU. Amy Dowling stated it was her favorite part of the convention because it made her realize, “what you can do (as a nurse) to change the lives of others.” Katie Valenti followed this up with, “ (Dr. Kairoth) had a way of getting a serious point across that could silence the whole room, and you KNOW that everyone was feeling what she was saying… it was really inspirational and reminded us of why were doing this.” Finally Jodi Mugele stated, “(Dr. Karioth) gave an amazing and quite encouraging speech....best part of the conference!” Congratulations to Barbara Green and Amber Major, who were both recipients of recent nursing scholarships. Barbara received the District 3 Scholarship from the Florida Nurses Association (FNA) Foundation on September 25, 2010 and Amber received a scholarship at this year’s FNSA convention in Daytona Beach. Furthermore, eight of our senior nursing students from the Cocoa Campus have added the challenge of participating in the UCF Honor’s in the Major Program (HIM). In addition, all of the Brevard 2010 graduates from the CON have taken their National licensing exam to become Registered Nurses, and the Campus pass rate was 100%!

College of Health and Public Affairs CourtWatch Brevard Nancy Dunwoody St. George, a UCF Cocoa senior in Legal Studies, founded CourtWatch Brevard. This organization allows UCF students to take their theoretical knowledge into actual courts to research and define injustices victims of domestic violence face when using the legal system that prevents victims from escaping violent relationships. Student interns compare and contrast judicial styles to find a jurisprudence that effectively halts further acts of domestic violence and child abuse critical to ending the cycle of violence. Detailed reports are released to the judges and the public periodically that specify decisive changes. These interns earn community service credit through VolunteerUCF. Thirty students have worked with the program to date. The CourtWatch Brevard website has gone through renovations thanks to UCF Digital Media senior David Smith and will be back up soon. Please visit it at http://www.courtwatchbrevard.org. Brevard Welcomes a New Visiting Professor Dr. Deborah Rhyne has joined the Southern Region as a visiting professor teaching both online and face-to-face courses. Dr. Rhyne is a long and loyal UCF supporter after having earned multiple degrees here: B.S. Criminal Justice (1974), M.A. Education (1988), and PhD. Curriculum and Instruction(1998). She also holds a M.A. in Criminal Justice from Rollins College in Winter Park. Dr. Rhyne brings 20 years of teaching experience and 17 years in law enforcement experience to our campus.
