The PSA Seminar Committee is a group of passionate undergraduate psychology students who are eager to get involved and participate in the coolest course union!
The goal of the Seminar Committee is to help enrich the academic experiences of undergrad psych students by bringing together engaging seminars outside the classrooms. To reach this goal, the committee will provide effective support to ensure the success of upcoming psychology seminars. Committee members will be assisting the Seminar Coordinators to plan, organize, and execute exciting seminars throughout the year.
There will be several kinds of seminars, which include career-related informative seminars, academic-related information sessions, seminars on current issues in psychology research, and other interesting topics in psychology. Committee members will brainstorm themes and seminar topics, pick which professors to invite, talk to them, help choose an appropriate venue for upcoming seminars, prepare refreshments for upcoming events, arrange honorariums for speakers, and help promote the seminars!
The PSA Academic Committee works with other executives to organize events such as the Dr. Freud Competition, Mentorship Program, Grad Night and more!
Committee members provide necessary support to the PSA’s executive team. As a Volunteer Committee member, you will work closely with the Volunteer Coordinators in preparing for volunteer events and assisting in the management of the PSA office space. To ensure that all events run as smoothly as possible Volunteer Committee members will aid the set-up, cleanup, and other general tasks. Additionally, Volunteer Committee members are required to work a minimum of 2 hours a week in the PSA office where they will have the responsibility of assisting in the managing of office hours. Committee members will have the task of ensuring that the office is well maintained and running effectively. Such responsibilities require hard-working and reliable individuals who have strong time management skills and who are capable of working under pressure.
The PSA Social Committee is a group of enthusiastic individuals who use knowledge and their previous experiences to assist the social coordinators in coming up with creative ideas for events, to help prepare for and decorate our venue before events, and to discuss ways of establishing entertaining events to help bring our community closer together!
The goal of the Social Committee is to create a greater sense of community among the undergrad psych student body and to create opportunities for students to interact with the faculty in an informal environment. To reach this goal, the committee will help the Social Coordinators brainstorm ways of hosting awesome events that consistently attract a maximum number of people – we always want a full house!
We would like the Social Committee members to share their thoughts on previous PSA events that they may have attended in order to help us create and improve future events. Committee members will be encouraged to draw inspiration from other clubs and organizations in order to help determine what makes a successful event possible. Committee members are also expected to help find suitable venues for events and figure out effective ways of spending on a tight budget. Last but not least, members themselves will attend the events and spread the hype and good vibes wherever they go!
