Suinn Minority Achievement Program Award

This award rewards graduate programs in psychology that have demonstrated excellence in the recruitment, retention and graduation of ethnic minority students.

Sponsor: Office of Ethnic Minority Affairs

Description

The Suinn Award is presented each year to a program that has demonstrated excellence in the recruitment, retention and graduation of ethnic minority students. Programs are rewarded as a measure of their overall commitment to cultural diversity in all phases of departmental activity; the number and percentage of ethnic minority students enrolled; and the percentage of ethnic minority students who earned doctorates in the past five years.

The Office of Ethnic Minority Affairs established the Suinn Minority Achievement Program Award in 1999. This annual award honors Richard M. Suinn, PhD, a past president of APA, for his outstanding leadership in the field of psychology and commitment to ethnic minority issues.

Eligibility

The Commission on Ethnic Minority Recruitment, Retention and Training (CEMRRAT2) Task Force is requesting that ethnic minority students nominate their doctoral programs in scientific (e.g., developmental, experimental, cognitive, social, psychobiology, etc.) or professional (e.g., clinical, counseling, school, etc.) psychology. The nominated programs should have demonstrated excellence in the recruitment, retention and graduation of ethnic minority students. The Suinn Minority Achievement Awards will be presented in August 2014 at the 122nd Annual Convention of the American Psychological Association in Washington, D.C.
