Psychology Leadership Development
The academic/psychology leadership development committee works closely with the Kentucky Psychological Association academic representative. Their primary role is to coordinate the annual Spring Academic Conference sponsored by KPF. They also plan academic and leadership training opportunities for Kentucky psychologists and psychology students (e.g., at KPA/KPF's annual convention). They may also assist with KPF board member training.
The annual 2018 KPF Spring Academic Conference was held on Saturday, April 7th at Eastern Kentucky University. The Conference provides a unique opportunity for graduate and undergraduate students to present their research in juried competitions, attend workshops, develop practical skills, and network with fellow students from across Kentucky.
Students are encouraged to nominate a faculty member as the Outstanding Graduate or Outstanding Undergraduate Mentor. Faculty members are invited to participate in the Conference as judges, mentors, and coaches. Undergraduate students have the opportunity to talk with graduate students about "how to get into graduate school," and graduate students may also serve as judges for the undergraduate poster competition.
