APA Division 45 Conference

The third biennial Conference of the APA Society for the Psychological Study of Ethnic Minority Issues (Division 45) will be held June 19-21, 2014, at the University of Oregon.

The third biennial Conference of the APA Society for the Psychological Study of Ethnic Minority Issues (Division 45) will be held June 19-21, 2014, at the University of Oregon. The goals of the conference are: 

  1. the presentation of state-of-the-art research related to the psychology of individuals from all ethnic minority groups within the United States; 

  2. the professional development of ethnic minority researchers (students and professionals); and

  3. greater networking and collaboration among researchers conducting research on ethnic minority issues across various fields of psychology.

This is the only conference specifically devoted to research relevant to Division 45.
 
The conference chair will be Gordon Nagayama Hall, PhD, past president of Division 45 and past editor of Cultural Diversity and Ethnic Minority Psychology. Hall served on the program committees for the previous two Division 45 conferences that were held at the University of Michigan. The conference will feature outstanding plenary speakers and symposia, as well as preconference workshops for professional development.
 
The University of Oregon is a mid-sized, tree-lined campus in Eugene, two hours south of Portland. Oregon is quite pleasant in late June, with average temperatures in the mid-70s. Eugene is known for its outdoor activities, and is proximal to the Oregon coast, the Cascade Mountains, wineries and microbreweries. 

Although the 2014 Division 45 Conference is more than one year from now, it is not too early to start planning your research presentations for the conference. The Call for Proposals will be sent in early 2014. Mark June 19-21, 2014, on your calendar for the Division 45 Conference at the University of Oregon.
