Mission Statement

EPSA represents Educational Psychology students in all areas (Human Development, Learning Sciences, Quantitative Methods, and School Psychology) and serves four core functions:

  • Improving the quality of students’ academic, professional, social, and personal development as they navigate graduate school
  • Understanding student views and opinions and being their voice
  • Acting as a liaison between students and faculty
  • Hosting social, academic, professional, and personal development events that serve students’ needs

Serving on the EPSA Leadership Team is an opportunity to develop leadership and professional development skills! The EPSA Leadership Team plans and executes numerous events and programs throughout the academic year, collaborating with students, other departmental organizations, faculty, and administration.

Diversity and Inclusion Association (DIA)

The purpose of DIA is to promote a diversity of perspectives into teaching, research, professional development, and community-building activities.

Mission statement

The purpose of DIA is to promote a diversity of perspectives into teaching, research, professional development, and community-building activities. We do this by connecting individuals across the four program areas, creating spaces for dialogue, heightening awareness of minoritized communities, and providing opportunities for engagement in social and educational activities. Not only are we committed to these pursuits within our department, but we also strive to engage with and advocate for local and campus communities. Our committee celebrates diverse identities and ideas and is committed to fostering equity and inclusivity in Educational Psychology.
