"118th Annual Meeting of the American Psychological Association"

Grant in Aid of Research

Final Report: "This report is intended as a summary of my work and expenditures related to a Spring 2010 Grant in Aid of Research (GIAR) for the project: Cultural competence in undergraduates. The $300 award was used to support the production of my research poster and travel to present it at the American Psychological Association (APA) convention in San Diego, CA. The conference and research presentation were successful experiences. My own research was well-received, and I was able to engage in very productive conversations with other scholars in the field. Although I cannot provide concrete evidence of a connection, I believe the networking possible at the conference likely contributed positively to a subsequent invitation to write a book chapter on the topic of experiential learning this year. Moreover, I am now serving my first year as Program Chair for the APA Convention (for Division 2 – the Society for the Teaching of Psychology). I coordinated the peer review process of submissions to the Division for the first time this winter (e.g., assigning reviewers, reading reviews and making final determinations about acceptances and rejections). The time spent with the previous Program Chair at the 2010 convention was invaluable as I have taken on this new role as a scholar. I am very grateful to the Research Council for their generous support."
