NMSU faculty members named to leadership roles in American Psychological Association
New Mexico State University faculty members Jonathan Schwartz and Luis Vazquez have been elected to prominent leadership roles of their respective divisions of the American Psychological Association.
Schwartz, head of the Counseling and Educational Psychology Department in the College of Education, was one of three candidates nominated for the president-elect position of Division 51 of the American Psychological Association - the Society for the Psychological Study of Men and Masculinity. It was recently announced that he won a national election and will begin his president-elect term in August. In August 2013, he will lead the organization as its president.
"This is a high-visibility position and will bring attention to the university Counseling and Educational Psychology Department," Schwartz said. "This is a great way to get national exposure for the work we do at NMSU."
Vazquez serves as NMSU's associate vice president for research integrity, and was elected president-elect of Division 45 of the American Psychological Association - the Society for the Psychological Study of Ethnic Minority Issues - last August. His term as president starts at the APA convention in Orlando next month.
