Directors of the SEED Lab

Dr. Melanie A. Morrison

Melanie A. Morrison is a Professor of Psychology, in the Applied Social Psychology division at the University of Saskatchewan. Melanie conducts research designed to have positive implications for members of marginalized social groups. She is most passionate about issues affecting the following communities: sexual and gender minorities (i.e., people who are not heterosexual and not cisgender) and Indigenous persons (i.e., people who are First Nations, Métis, and Inuit). Melanie would like to see her research be used as a metric for gauging social justice nationally, and as evidence of a growing commitment to upholding the human rights of all persons. Melanie has published extensively on various forms of stereotyping, prejudice, and discrimination, and supervises students at the graduate and undergraduate levels who show promise and dedication to research in these areas. If interested in exploring research opportunities in the SEED lab please do not hesitate to contact Dr. Morrison via email.
