STP Mission Statement
The Society for the Teaching of Psychology promotes excellence in the teaching and learning of psychology. The Society provides resources and services, access to a global collaborative community, and opportunities for professional development. It endeavors to promote equity and social justice for teachers and students of psychology with marginalized, racially minoritized, and intersecting identities. The Society also strives to advance the scholarship of teaching and learning; advocate for the needs of teachers of psychology; promote diversity, equity, and inclusion initiatives within the teaching and learning of psychology; foster partnerships across academic settings; and increase recognition of the value of the teaching profession.
Note: STP functions as Division 2 of the American Psychological Association (APA) but welcomes to full membership those who have no APA affiliation. It is not necessary to belong to the APA in order to be a member of the Society for the Teaching of Psychology.
