Focus on Graduate Students

Rebecca Singer, Div. 3 Graduate Student Representative


I hope the year has been going well for all the Division 3 student affiliates. This is Rebecca Singer again, your Division 3 student representative for 2006-2007. I wanted to take this opportunity to provide an update on what I have being doing this year.

As always, one of my main goals is to increase student membership in Division 3. I encourage all mentors to sponsor graduate student memberships and encourage participation in the annual APA convention. As always, information on membership can be found at the following website: www.apa.org/divisions/div6/mbrinfo.html.

Sometimes it feels like many scientific debates have this problem (see link)

I have also sent out several emails informing students of upcoming opportunities, such as the Committee on Animal Research & Ethics’ Mentoring Award. This is an excellent opportunity to learn from colleagues in faculty and funding positions as well as to network. The award program is only in its second year, but promises to be as successful in the future as it has been in the past. I encourage all students to learn more about this award and apply in the coming years. If you are not receiving these updates please send me an email at rasing2@uky.edu and I will add you to my list.

I am also looking forward to this year’s poster competition at the APA convention in San Francisco. This is a first for Division 3 and I am excited to see this year’s submissions. I will be working with the incoming student representative to encourage even greater participation in this program in the future. I hope to see many of you this year in San Francisco.

In closing, I would like to invite each of you to submit brief descriptions of some of your research that you would like to share with other graduate students in this forum. I would like to highlight one or two students in each newsletter edition. As always, if you have suggestions or comments on how to improve my service as student representative, please let me know. I look forward to hearing from you all!
