Association of School Psychology Students

The Goal of ASPS

The primary purpose of ASPS is to promote mental health. Additionally, ASPS shall represent Texas State University- San Marcos school psychology graduate students as a unified body in order to discuss issues and concerns that affect students, both professionally and academically; to provide opportunities to develop and nurture leadership skills; to allow student mentorship and occasions for sharing relevant resources; to foster professionalism during training; to institute a means to effect changes within the department/program; to sponsor speakers and extra-curricular training; to establish links with professional organizations and school psychology professionals in the community; and to afford networking opportunities for school psychology graduate students.

In addition, ASPS will promote and develop social cohesion between students and faculty of the School Psychology program. The ASPS shall be a nonprofit, nonsectarian, and nonpartisan organization. The ASPS shall not discriminate against any person on the basis of race, color religion, age, sex, nationality or sexual orientation. ASPS shall coordinate and promote activities, programs and fundraising events which support the goals of this organization.

ASPS spends a day learning about Hippotherapy at Austin's Red Arena.

ASPS's September Meet and Greet

You would think we had the event professional catered.

Our first event of the new academic year when off without a hitch considering the logistical problems we had setting everything up. We were happy to see all the students who attended, more students than we have ever seen at an ASPS event, and hope everyone had an enjoyable time, mingled, and hopefully will come to our next event, halloween party maybe,  and the events we have planned for the remainder of the semester.

Hope Everyone Comes to the Next Event...
