The UT Student Circle Chapter of the Association of Black Psychologists (ABPsi) and their advisor Dr. Kevin Cokley
The UT Student Circle Chapter of the Association of Black Psychologists (ABPsi), along with their advisor Dr. Kevin Cokley, attended the 42nd Annual International Convention of the Association of Black Psychologists (ABPsi) in Chicago, IL. Five undergraduate students and 5 graduate students attended the Convention. The ABPsi convention was an invaluable experience for the students that will shape their orientations to be critically conscious Black psychologists. The undergraduate students participated in a symposium entitled “Continuing the Legacy of ABPsi: Developing the Next Generation of Conscious Black Psychologists”. The graduate students presented poster presentations based on research being conducted with Dr. Cokley. The students had a wonderful time and made great connections. As a result of the conference, one of the doctoral students was invited to write a book chapter! Another former UT undergraduate student and current 1st year doctoral student at the University of Houston, Martinique Jones, was elected the incoming chair of the National Student Circle. There were many positive comments made about the strong presence of UT undergraduate and graduate students. The support from AADS was critical and very much appreciated.
