Student Organizations

Get Involved!

We offer plenty of opportunities to get involved in student organizations.

Advocacy Coordinating Team (ACT)

The ACT consists of students and faculty who are committed to advocating for the profession of psychology at the local, state, regional and national level. The APA Graduate Student Association (APAGS) designates students to regional coordinators, who in turn assist in the development of state and departmental/program based committees.

Ally

Since 1996, the Ally Group has consisted of students and faculty who share a commitment to understanding the connections between racism, sexism, socioeconomic status, heterosexism, and other forms of prejudice, discrimination, and injustice. Ally provides a safe, supportive environment for difficult, diversity-related discussions.

B.R.I.D.G.E. Committee and Building Bridges Conference

The Building Bridges Conference, established as a grass roots initiative among the SCIP student leadership in 1997, has become a recognized regional conference with a primary focus on topics relating to Native Americans in higher education. 

The B.R.I.D.G.E. (Building Relationships, Integrating Diversity and Growth in Education) Conference Committee is comprised of clinical students and faculty who participate in the implementation of the Building Bridges Conference.

Human Factors and Ergonomics Student Chapter

This is a student chapter of the Human Factors and Ergonomics Society. The mission is to further Human Factors and Ergonomic education, both academic and applied, to create a rich environment promoting original ideas that generate quality research and increase communication and interaction between chapter members and professionals in the field.

International Emergency Management Student Association (IEMSA)

The purpose of IEMSA is to strive to promote community awareness through practical education and the dissemination of information on the field of Emergency Management. We aspire to engage students in volunteer and/or interned positions that will benefit the students and prepare them for a career in the field.

Psi Chi and Psychology Club

Psi Chi is a local chapter of the National Honor Society for Psychology promoting student involvement in ongoing department research and in developing their own research projects, and sponsors psychology-related events throughout the year.

Social Committee

The purpose of the social committee is to coordinate, plan and fund raise for social activities within the Clinical Training Program and Department of Psychology. Annual activities include a fall welcoming picnic, winter party, and end of the year picnic.

Students of Color in Psychology (SCIP)

Since 1994, the program's Students of Color in Psychology (SCIP) mentoring program has provided opportunities for students of color in psychology to explore issues of race and ethnicity in their developing professional identity. The SCIP program sponsors social activities for its members and for the program as a whole. They also sponsor/co-sponsors presentations on diversity topics.
