Campus Representative Program
The purpose of our campus representative program is to increase communication between students and the APS/APSSC. We believe that students can become leaders at their respective schools and inform others about the opportunities available in psychological science. We highly encourage both undergraduate and graduate student affiliates to become campus representatives.
What are the main duties of a campus representative?
You will receive bi-monthly e-mails from the Membership and Volunteers Officer about special events and activities that are happening in APS and the APSSC. Materials will be provided for you to post on bulletin boards and to announce at Psi Chi Chapter meetings and other departmental organizations. Also, you will receive online information, such as the APSSC e-Newsletters, to forward to students via e-mail.
In an effort to promote psychological science, you will also be involved in our APSSC group activities, such as the Fall and Spring Rally Weeks and Submissions Week. You will be working closely with the Membership and Volunteers Officer and your Regional Campus Representative to assist you with these endeavors. Additionally, you will have the opportunity to write about yourself and your school if featured in our Campus Representative Spotlight, which is published in our monthly e-Newsletter. You will be able to share your tips for fellow campus reps, and some about your research interests and programs available at your school.
