Academic Subcommittee

The aim of the academic committee is to assist psychology students with finding and taking on academic opportunities within the university.

Additionally, you will gain experience with the management of a long term program through your involvement in the PSA mentorship program, which pairs upper year mentors with first year mentees to help guide their transition into university.

If you are interested, we encourage you to apply (regardless of your level of experience!). We are looking for individuals interested in gaining leadership and public speaking experience, and have a personality that would mesh well with the team.
