Black Psychology Student Association

Mission

To enlighten, empower, and inspire students with interest in their rich history, present, and futures as it relates to how it controls our thoughts and behaviors today. We also promote growth through networking, community service, and engagement in the overall VCU community. BPSA strives to develop students’ involvement within various communities by stimulating latent abilities though discussion, implementation, and practice of psychological ideologies as they relate to people. Through active participation in Richmond and VCU’s cultural groups and gatherings, it is our hope that each student will become more capable and aware of shaping social change. Though our association promotes growth and success within the Black community and has its roots in psychology, we welcome members of all races, ethnicities, cultures, majors, and interests.
