STP is excited to announce the Early Career Psychologists Committee (ECPs). The committee is charged with spearheading activities and opportunities to aid Early Career Professionals through education, training and networking, as well as representing ECP interests in division matters. Our goal is to help serve the needs of new faculty members as they develop their courses and research programs. Specifically we want to assist ECPs with faculty development issues while focusing on the importance of pedagogy and facilitating the scholarship of teaching and learning.
There are two openings for committee members this year! The applications
are due by November 20th. Please consider applying.
Scroll to the bottom of this page for more information.
We have an STP listserv specifically designed to announce information relevant to ECPs! The primary purpose of the listserv will be to announce upcoming conferences, awards, travel funding, and other opportunities for ECPs, but discussion of ECP-related topics is also encouraged. If you’d like to subscribe, please e-mail visit http://list.kennesaw.edu/listserv/wa?A0=STP-ECP. Please note that you can unsubscribe at any time.
