Ethnic and Racial Diversity Committee

Ethnic and Racial Diversity Committee (ERDC)

Crystal S. Collier, Psy.D., Chair

The Ethnic and Racial Diversity Committee (ERDC) was formulated for the purpose of advising the Executive Committee on behalf of the membership concerning issues, which impact the organizational and training agendas of the Council. Explicit in this charge is the social responsibility to ensure that representation of diverse ethnic and racial groups is reflected in the organization’s membership and committees. Through such advocacy the Committee promotes and insures the integration issues of ethnic/racial diversity throughout all programs and activities, facilitates and consults on the development of ethnic/racial diversity in the programs and curricula of member schools, and helps NCSPP to implement the resolutions of the Puerto Rico Conference.

ERDC Individual and Program Awards
NCSPP gives individual as well as program awards for those that have made significant contributions to the enhancement of ethnic racial diversity. The granting of awards is accomplished through the awards sub-committee of the Ethnic Racial Diversity Committee. Individual awards are made during the Mid-Winter Meeting. The two awards are rotated by year, with the Program Award given in odd-numbered years, and the Individual award given in even-numbered years.
