As an I/O psychologist, I am proud of what my colleagues were able to contribute to ensuring our nation’s safety. The belief that I/O psychologists must continue to make such contributions was well stated by Harris (2003): “I think we as I/O psychologists have much to offer in this arena, and I encourage all of you to extend your help in combating terrorism and making this world a safer place to live” (p. 79). In 1990 the Handbook of Industrial and Organizational Psychology was published (Dunnette & Hough), the first of a four-volume set that documents some of our profession’s finest scientific achievements.

Classic textbooks of the 1950s, such as Personnel and Industrial Psychology by Ghiselli and Brown (1955), gave way in title (as well as in substance) to books with more of an organizational thrust. Traditional academic boundaries between disciplines began to blur in this postwar period. Engineering psychology was a fusion of experimental and industrial psychology; organizational behavior was a mix of industrial psychology, social psychology, and sociology. This melding of disciplines was healthy because it decreased the use of narrow, parochial attempts to address complex areas of research.

Thus I /O psychology is devoted to understanding our major mission in life. As our nation faces increasing problems of economic productivity, the field of I /O psychology continues to contribute to making our world a better place in which to live. Indeed, Colarelli (1998) asserted that across the full spectrum of work organizations in society, psychological interventions designed to solve social and organizational problems are underutilized. Additionally, the scientific contributions that I /O psychologists have made are regarded as sufficiently noteworthy to occasion the revision of federal laws governing fair employment practices.
