The Mission, Vision, Goals, and Objectives demonstrate the division’s priorities and values.
While the document is aspirational in nature, it aims to guide the division in proceedings.
Division 45, The Society for the Psychological Study of Culture, Ethnicity and Race,
is for psychologists concerned with ethnic minority issues.
We promote understanding of ethnic minority psychological principles, and
provision of culturally competent service delivery.
We promote the elimination of racism and social injustice against People of Color and
the incorporation of diversity and multiculturalism into all societal issues.
The Division encourages empowerment inclusion and collaboration among psychologists,
promotes multicultural research, education and training regarding People of Color, and
represents these concerns within the American Psychological Association and to the public.
The Society disseminates its scholarship through the publication of its Division journal,
Cultural Diversity and Ethnic Minority Psychology, the Focus newsletter, and
presents awards to outstanding contributors.
