Brian Oppy

Sociology Department Chair
Professor of Psychology
I joined the faculty in Psychology at Chico State in 1995, where I've taught and conducted research in applied perception, memory, and human learning. As a generalist, I have always best enjoyed teaching the introductory class, Principles of Psychology. I've served in a variety of leadership roles, including chairing the psychology department, and creating a campus program for department chair leadership development. I've also served as an associate vice president for faculty advancement/faculty affairs (at Sacramento State). I joined the Department of Sociology as Department Chair in January of 2019, and enjoy supporting sociology students and faculty.
