An important update about SSSP 2022 (As of October 5, 2022)

Due to a number of challenges, this year’s SSSP conference will not be held in person in Oxford, MS on October, 29th. SPSP is working with SSSP event organizers to transition the 2022 SSSP Conference to an alternate format. We appreciate your interest in this event. As we finalize plans for 2022 and beyond, we will update this page. Check back often for updates.


Founded in 1978 by a group of social psychologists at the University of Georgia, the Society of Southeastern Social Psychologists (SSSP) boasts a membership of over 400 students, faculty, and professional psychologists throughout the United States. 

Most members hail from the following states: Maryland, Delaware, Virginia, West Virginia, Kentucky, Tennessee, North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia, Alabama, Mississippi, Louisiana, Arkansas, Texas, and Florida.

There are no dues or fees associated with membership in SSSP. We do, however, ask for voluntary contributions at our annual Fall conference (view Past Meetings). These contributions support the Outstanding Graduate Student Research Awards, which are given to the best graduate student research presentations at our annual Fall conference.

The Society of Southeastern Social Psychologists (SSSP) is a separate informal entity from SPSP guided by their own Advisory Board. The Annual Meeting program is the responsibility of the SSSP organizers. The program content should not be considered an endorsement by SPSP. SPSP provides logistical support, such as, registration management, marketing and contracting.
