Diversity & Climate
The Diversity & Climate Committee monitors diversity in the organization and funds efforts to support the conference attendance of students who come from underrepresented groups (e.g.,ethnic or racial minority students; first-generation college students; lesbian, gay, or bisexual students; transgender students; and/or students with a physical disability), in an effort to increase the diversity of personality and social psychology.
The Fellows Committee works to identify SPSP members with longstanding contribution to SPSP and the field of Personality and Social Psychology. Those selected by the Fellows committee then become SPSP fellows themselves.

The SISPP committee works to select SISPP locations, candidates, faculty, and curate courses and workshops.
The Student Committee works to promote the interest of SPSP's student members. This includes producing helpful student content, organizing events for student members at the annual convention, and much more.
The purpose of the SPSP Training Committee is to provide emerging, developing and evolving scholars and professionals with training on cutting edge topics and methods to maximize the impact of research in personality and social psychology as a basis for supporting and improving health, education and human welfare
