Members, 2023 STP Presidential Task Forces

STP President-Elect Diane Finley has identified two task forces for her presidential year, and she is currently seeking applicants for either task force.  Consistent with our Mission Statement and the Statement on Addressing Systemic Racism and Inequity in STP, we encourage applications from colleagues who are from underrepresented groups and have diverse backgrounds and experiences.

Terms of Service: Both task forces are time-limited. Task force reports are expected within 2023.

Community College Involvement in STP

Community college faculty comprise a large group of psychology instructors. Yet, we do not see them engaging with STP in large numbers. The purpose for this task force is to figure out how to welcome these faculty, how to increase the number who join STP, and how we can encourage them to become active in STP leadership. What can STP do to facilitate that engagement? The mission will be to explore 1) how many CC faculty, both full-time and adjunct, belong to STP; 2) if members, how can we encourage more involvement; 3) if not a member what can STP do to encourage engagement?

HBCU/MSI/TCU Involvement in STP

There are a large number of faculty who teach at Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCU), Minority Serving Institutions (MSI) and Tribal Colleges and University (TCU). Yet, we do not see these faculty engaging with STP in large numbers. The purpose for this task force is to figure out how to welcome these faculty, how to increase the number who join STP, and how we can encourage them to become active in STP leadership. What can STP do to facilitate that engagement? The mission will be to explore 1) how many faculty from these institutions, both full-time and adjunct, belong to STP; 2) if members, how can we encourage more involvement; 3) if not a member what can STP do to encourage engagement. 

How to Apply to Either Task Force
