The Division 16 Committee on Ethnic Minority Affairs (CEMA) is a subcommittee within American Psychological Association (APA) School Psychology Division. Our mission aligns with the broader mission of APA’s CEMA with an emphasis on aspects of psychology that are related to ethnic minorities. Our more immediate goals include promoting the recruitment and retention of ethnic minorities in the field of school psychology. We aim to diversity the school psychology pipeline by:
- Developing and implementing programs, strategies, and resources to promote and cultivate leadership in racially and ethnically diverse graduate students in school psychology
- Developing and implementing programs, strategies, and resources to recruit and retain racially and ethnically diverse students into the field of school psychology
