The purpose of the Graduate Students Committee is to stimulate SDPA membership among graduate students in psychology in San Diego and to better meet the needs of our graduate student members within the Association. The Committee maintains liaisons with the local graduate schools, sponsors workshops of special interest to graduate students and offers a mentor program in which graduate student members are paired with licensed members who have offered to guide them as they enter the profession of psychology.
If you are interested in serving on this Committee, please contact our Office Manager.
