STP Mission Statement
The Society for the Teaching of Psychology advances understanding of the discipline by promoting excellence in the teaching and learning of psychology. The Society provides resources and services, access to a collaborative community, and opportunities for professional development. The Society also strives to advance the scholarship of teaching and learning, advocate for the needs of teachers of psychology, foster partnerships across academic settings, and increase recognition of the value of the teaching profession.
Note: STP functions as Division 2 of the American Psychological Association (APA) but welcomes to full membership those who have no APA affiliation. It is not necessary to belong to the APA in order to be a member of the Society for the Teaching of Psychology.
