Early Career Scholars

History and Goals of the Committee 

 In 2003, the Council appointed a Junior Scholars Professional Development (JSPD) task force, later renamed as the “Early Career Scholars Committee.” Among the responsibilities of this task force were to (a) foster the professional advancement of junior scholars interested in the psychological study of social issues; and (b) propose ways to promote and maintain SPSSI membership among early career scholars who share these interests. The committee was established in recognition that more needs to be done, over and above existing measures, to bring younger generations of scholars into the fold of SPSSI.
