SFU Psychology welcomes lecturer Alyssa Croft

September 25, 2023

We are excited to announce that Dr. Alyssa Croft has recently joined the Department of Psychology at Simon Fraser University as a lecturer this Fall term!

After receiving her PhD in 2016 at the University of British Columbia, Alyssa Croft joined the University of Arizona as an assistant professor. Fascinated by social roles, identity, and group membership, Croft is on a pursuit to discover why people are constrained by invisible psychological barriers, such as stereotypes and societal norms.

At SFU, Alyssa aims to apply relevant social psychology research findings to cultivate inclusive communities, improving student learning, and increasing educational engagement.

This Fall 2023 term, she will be teaching:

  • PSYC 100 D100 Introduction to Psychology 

  • PSYC 100 D900 Introduction to Psychology 

  • PSYC 300W D100 Critical Analysis of Issues in Psychology

Please join us in welcoming Alyssa Croft to the Psychology department!
