STP MID-CAREER PSYCHOLOGY COMMITTEE
Research shows that mid-career faculty represent the largest group of academics. Unfortunately, there are relatively few resources aimed at successfully navigating this period of one’s career. To fill this important void, STP created the initial Mid-Career Mentoring Working Group in January of 2020 with the charge of assessing the needs of mid-career psychology faculty. In 2021, a second iteration of the Mid-Career Mentoring Working Group was tasked with building from these identified needs to spearhead activities and initiatives to support mid-career psychologists through education, training, and networking. In 2023, the STP Executive Committee voted to make this group a permanent committee and renamed it the Mid-Career Psychology Committee.
The goal of the Mid-Career Mentoring Psychology Committee is to help serve the needs of faculty as they navigate the murky waters of their mid-career. This includes providing community and support for psychologists as they try to maintain their passion and vitality as educators, expand and advance their research programs, and take on more service/administrative responsibilities.
Membership in STP’s Mid-Career Mentoring Psychology Committee is open to any STP member who self-identifies as “mid-career.” This may include individuals who completed their last degree more than ten years ago or those who have earned the rank of tenure. However, membership is not restricted to those narrow guidelines. If you feel that you are “mid-career” the resources described below are likely to be relevant and useful.
