Division Awards

2018 APAGS Outstanding Division Award

Division 45, Society for the Psychological Study of Culture, Ethnicity and Race, has been selected as the recipient of the 2018 APAGS Outstanding Division Award. This award recognizes a division that demonstrates an exemplary level of commitment to providing opportunities for graduate student development.

This year our student committee challenged ourselves to be the best division in APA. We wanted to create more spaces, resources, and opportunities for students to feel like Division 45 is and continues to be their home. We were able to accomplish this with 17 webinars, 4 Twitter chats, the virtual mentorship program, and the campus representative program. We expanded our research agenda, we represented student voices on every committee in our division, and we funding programming nationwide. This year we expanded our online footprint, created more relationship with other divisions, and stretched our comfort zone so everyone could benefit. As a student committee, we went to conferences, we passed comprehensive exams, we matched for internship sites, we completed clinical practicums, published papers, completed our first year as doctoral students, and we grew personally and professionally.  I am beyond humbled and honored to serve with all of you. Thank you for supporting our student committee, thank you for your mentorship, and more than anything, thank you for believing in us
