PROGRESS ON THE PRESIDENTIAL INITIATIVES
Dear members of STP:
My thanks go out to the many members of our association who graciously volunteered to work on the Presidential Initiatives.
ACTIONS BY YOUR EXECUTIVE COMMITTEE
STP’s Executive Committee held is first biannual meeting March 29-30, 2019 at the Menger Hotel in San Antonio. Here are some highlights from that meeting.
For many successful years, the Graduate Student Teaching Association (GSTA) has been organized by a host institution, most recently the City University of New York. Our thanks go to Patricia Brooks and her team for their excellent work. However, this model tends to draw primarily from the region of the host institution. The EC has voted to re-organize the GSTA to a regional model that mirrors the current structure of the Early Career Psychologists Committee.
The EC also voted to create two new awards. The first will be for mentoring new faculty in becoming excellent teachers and the second will be for civic engagement which will be for individuals who use their teaching skills to make a difference in their community.
Yours in teaching,
Rick Miller, STP President
