Counseling Psychology Student Association (CPSA)

The Counseling Psychology Student Association (CPSA) was formed in 2005 as the student-run organization for all doctoral students in the UWM's Counseling Psychology Ph.D. program. CPSA exists to fulfill three basic functions for its members, although its activities are not limited to these objectives:

  1. Student advocacy
  2. Professional development
  3. Socialization/peer-to-peer mentorship

Members of the CPSA are very active, both within the program and at the national (e.g., ACA, APA, APAGS) levels, offering a student perspective to the faculty and serving as the "student voice" within the administration. Election of officers is held on an annual basis and thus CPSA also provides an opportunity for students to take on leadership roles within the program. All students are encouraged to become members of this organization as it directly impacts their experiences.
