Our Charge

The Committee shall oversee and assess all Society activities related to diversity issues, including, but not limited to, diversity in membership, integration of diversity into the curriculum, hiring and retaining a diverse faculty, and attracting members of diverse groups to psychology as a major and a profession.

Purpose and Goals

We are committed to increasing the presence of people and perspectives from diverse backgrounds into our teaching and psychology as a profession. The committee defines cultural diversity to include race, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, age, religion, socioeconomic background, and physical ability.

Please consider sharing with us the resources that you have found helpful in your teaching and/or recruitment. We also welcome suggestions you might have for the committee. Please contact Kathy Keefe-Cooperman at
