Academic Division Chair: Jenny Wettersten, MA, LP

The principal mission of the Academic Division is to promote and support a culturally diverse group of psychologists engaged in academic, educational, administrative, and research roles. Through conference presentations, continuing education and workshops, we seek to provide opportunities for academic psychologists to share knowledge and resources on the research and practice of psychology. We also seek to support academic psychologists in their professional growth and development, through educational opportunities, community building, and mentoring.  We are dedicated to the values of social-cultural diversity, equity, opportunity and inclusion—especially for those with marginalized identities. Together with our practice colleagues, we strive to grow the quality of life of students, professionals, and the communities we serve.
