We’re recruiting subcommittee members for the 2020-2021 school year!

Being a part of a subcommittee is a great way to meet other psychology students, plan events to assist others, and to have fun. Each subcommittee will accept applications in their own way.

To be eligible for any Subcommittee Member position, you must be:

  • Currently taking 0.5 credit PSY course, or
  • Enrolled in one of the PSY subject POSt(s)

All applications are due Saturday, October 17, 11:59 PM EST, with the exception of Seminar Subcommittee.

Academic Subcommittee



The PSA Academic Committee is responsible for facilitating events and programs meant to empower undergraduate psychology students by preparing them to take on the various academic opportunities available at the university.  

Committee members will be directly responsible for helping to plan and host traditional events meant to prepare students for upcoming evaluations such as the Dr. Freud Competition. Committee members will also get the chance to help coordinate more long term programs like the Mentorship Program, which is designed to help students transition through their coursework and university lives successfully. 

We care most about the kind of ideas and energy you will bring to the team, and we want to provide more opportunities for you to have a greater say in your experience. Committee members will be expected to help brainstorm for events and potential projects, be engaged in cross-committee work, and even lead events!
