Get Involved in STP!

If you’re an STP member interested in becoming more involved in STP activities then you’ve come to the right place. STP is committed to providing opportunities to as many of its members as possible to participate in STP initiatives. Whenever there’s a vacancy on a committee, task force, or working group, this will be one of the places where the vacancy is announced. Vacancies will also be announced in the current issue of our online newsletter.  If you have a specific interest or question about any of our initiatives, please visit the STP Leadership page for email addresses of our executive committee members, committee chairs, editors, directors, and coordinators.  Even if there is no current vacancy, you should feel free to contact one or more of these individuals to express your interest in getting involved. 

If you are not a current member of STP, visit our Join page. We welcome anyone interested in the teaching of psychology. 

For all positions, STP encourages applications and nominations from colleagues who are from underrepresented groups and have diverse backgrounds and experiences.

Current Service Opportunities

Call for Applications for the Inaugural International Travel Award Committee

Starting in 2019, STP will be offering a new award for international conference travel (primarily for those outside the US/Canada to travel to conferences in the US and for those traveling from the US/Canada to international conferences). We need 3-5 STP members to serve on this committee under the leadership of committee chair Dr. Morton Ann Gernsbacher of the University of Madison-Wisconsin. This committee will work in the fall of 2018 to refine the criteria for the award and establish timelines for receipt and awarding of applications beginning in 2019. The committee will also establish the timelines for service for committee members. 

If you are interested in being considered for the committee for this new award, please send a brief CV and a 250-500 word statement of interest to Dr. Gernsbacher ( - subject heading "International Travel Award Committee") by August 31, 2018. Please highlight your experience with international conferences whether they were psychology-related or not. Questions can be addressed to Dr. Gernsbacher, Amy Fineburg (VP of Awards & Recognitions), or Susan Nolan (VP for Diversity and International Relations).
