This is my sixth and last end-of-year message as President of the International Union of Psychological Science.

In the various formal and informal interactions that I have had with our National Member representatives, I’ve been struck by the warmth and openness of communications, and the willingness to share views on how the Union can better serve not only our membership, but also how the Union may impact the larger society, that we are all indelibly a part of. In particular, the quest for Psychology Serving all of Humanity has been a leit motif that national and regional psychology leadership has repeatedly underscored.
