Call for Applications: Division 15 Graduate Student Ambassadors

Division 15’s Membership Committee is currently soliciting applications for its newly created Graduate Student Ambassador program. The purpose of this program is to create a community of graduate students who will serve as liaisons between Division 15 and their institution. Graduate students in Educational Psychology or related fields are eligible to apply. Ambassadors will typically serve two years (all terms will end no later than students’ graduation).

Responsibilities include:

  • Ambassadors will support general Division 15 awareness and growth within their programs and help disseminate D15’s most important messaging. For example, ambassadors will be asked to forward important messages from the division to other graduate students in their programs.
  • Ambassadors will also serve as the point person for graduate students who have questions regarding membership. They may also support recruitment efforts by sharing enrollment and renewal information among students in their graduate programs no more than twice per year.
  • Ambassadors will foster communications between graduate students in their program and the Division. For example, ambassadors will relay the concerns and needs of their fellow graduate students to relevant Division 15 committees (e.g., Graduate Student Affairs Committee, Membership Committee, Early Career Committee, etc.) via short annual reports.

Those interested may apply hereAmbassadors will be acknowledged on the Division 15 website, as well as at the annual Division 15 Business Meeting.  The deadline to apply is April 14, 2017. Applicants will be notified of a decision by the end of May, 2017.  If you have any questions about the program, please email any member of the Division 15 Membership Committee (contact information below).

Best regards,

The Division 15 Membership Committee

Division 15 Reaffirms Its Commitment to Diversity and Inclusiveness

Division 15 of the American Psychological Association is today reaffirming its commitment to diversity of thought, race, religion, sexual orientation, gender identity, language, physical ability, and nation of origin.
 
Our organization was designed to unite scholars from all walks of life toward a singular purpose: improving educational outcomes for all learners. We will continue to serve all learners to the best of our abilities, and we invite scholars and practitioners alike—both foreign and domestic—in this pursuit.
 
Sincerely,
The Division 15 Executive Committee
