The 62nd annual Nebraska Symposium on Motivation, "Cooperation and Compliance with Authority: The Role of Institutional Trust," will take place April 24-25 at the Nebraska Union on UNL's City Campus. Eight prominent trust scholars will be speaking on topics ranging from perceptions of court decisions to trust in scientific research findings.
The symposium is a great opportunity to learn more about how the public perceives governmental institutions, and why they may or may not cooperate with initiatives like those promoted by the School of Natural Resources, Nebraska Department of Natural Resources or local Natural Resource Districts.
In addition, the symposium will be followed by an NSF Workshop, "Institutional Trust and Confidence: An Interdisciplinary Workshop," on April 26 and 27. Dozens of researchers in various disciplines from around the globe will discuss theoretical and methodological issues in trust research.
These events are free and open for people to attend, but registration is required. More information about the symposium is available at http://psychology.unl.edu/symposium/nebraska-symposium-motivation.
For those unable to attend the symposium in person, the event will be streamed live on the website provided.
