Society for the Teaching of Psychology: Division 2 of the American Psychological Association

Regional Psychological Associations

There are seven regional psychological associations (see below). Each of the regional associations typically has STP related programing. Additionally, annually each regional conference will have either a Harry Kirke Wolfe Lecture, an APA Distinguished Scholar Lecture for Teaching, or an STP sponsored Speaker. Each regional has an STP coordinator who develops and facilitates teaching of psychology programming. We encourage you to attend and present STP-related programming at regional conferences.
