We, the Student Development Committee, would like to host a monthly student support group to provide an inclusive space for students from different programs to connect with and support each other. This group will be open to all students, regardless of their educational levels (i.e., graduate and undergraduate students) or membership status of the Division and the APA.
The student support group will be hosted by two Student Development Committee members every 3rd Wednesday of the month at 7 pm, Eastern Time. It will be operated in an open format to discuss highlighted and seasonally sensitive topics relevant to students’ life. Past group topics include, but are not limited to, internship applications, academic and non-academic careers, finding accountability buddies, and addressing diversity issues. This group would allow students from different programs to interact with each other and gain valuable insight into graduate school environment. It would also enable students to network, seek potential collaboration opportunities, and support each other through challenging times in school.
