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
