 The 2012 Southeastern Ecological Community Psychology Conference will be held at North Carolina Central University (NCCU) in Durham, NC.  NCCU is proud to be the first Historically Black College and University to host the Southeastern Ecological Community Psychology. The conference will be held Oct. 13-14, 2012 and the theme is "University and Community Partnerships:  Community Psychology Committed to Social Change." 

The conference theme underscores the collaboration between institutions of higher education and their larger communities (local, state, national, and global communities) to inquire about the role of community psychology effectuating change.  Two broad themes underline the goals of the conference; and, they include: 
  1.  the presentation of research which moves beyond university outreach to a critical discourse regarding reciprocity between university and community partnerships; and,
  2. the pursuit of strategies to expose undergraduate students to and engage them in community psychology.   
The conference seeks participation from not only community psychologists, graduate students, plus undergraduate students in academia but also will include community partners on the frontline of creating social change within in their community. 
The 2012 conference will feature Dr. Craig Brookins, Associate Professor, Psychology  in the Public Interest Program and Africana Studies from North Carolina State University, as the keynote luncheon speaker.   The deadline for proposal submissions is September 7, 2012 at 11:59 Eastern Standard Time.  The Call for Proposals can also be seen at http://www.se-eco2012.org/proposals.php.  Proposals are sought from faculty, graduate students, undergraduate students and community partners to examine the two broad conference themes. Symposia panels and posters are available formats.

Look forward to seeing you!
