- BECOME AN IGD FACILITATOR. Dr. Jay Bettergarcia is teaching PSY 304 Intergroup Dialogues in the Spring, but in order to have enough student facilitators to support the course, we need more students to take the IGD facilitator training in Winter, 2022. The class/workshop is 2 hours/week for 8 weeks. You would go through the IGD training in Winter 2022 and have the opportunity to be selected as a co-facilitator for the Spring 2022 PSY 304 class with Dr. Bettergarcia!
- It's an awesome learning experience, great for a CV or resume, and perfect for developing the kinds of people-focused helping skills and diversity-focused work that graduate programs and organizations are looking for (especially in the helping professions!).
- For more information, please see here: https://cla.calpoly.edu/student-resources/IGD. Please help spread the word to club members, friends, or roommates who might be a good fit!

Hello PSY/CD students! My name is Hector Reyes and this year I am serving as your WPA student representative. I wanted to share a great opportunity that is available to you, both undergraduate and graduate students. The WPA is having their annual convention this year in person and students who are conducting research can submit a proposal for the convention. If accepted, you will be able to hold a poster presentation or an oral presentation (graduate students only) in April of 2022. This is a great opportunity to gain experience presenting at professional conferences and begin building your resume/CV for graduate school applications. Please consider this opportunity and discuss with your advisors. Proposals are due December 15th and I have included a link to the WPA website. If you have any questions about WPA, the annual convention, or proposals, feel free to email me! firstname.lastname@example.org. https://westernpsych.org/2022-convention/
