Student Accomplishments

Shannon O’Neill begins her tenure as the APAGS (American Psychological Association of Graduate Students) Fordham University Campus Representative (CR). As an APAGS CR Shannon will be a part of a network that is the heart of a subcommittee of APAGS, the Advocacy Coordinating Team (ACT).

ACT is composed of psychology graduate students who primarily engage in legislative advocacy work on behalf of the science and profession of psychology, in the interest of individuals studying, researching and practicing psychology, and on behalf of individuals who are the recipients of psychological services.

In her duties as Fordham’s APAGS CR and ACT member Shannon will promote the welfare of graduate students and the vigor of the profession by their participation in legislative lobbying efforts. Additionally, she, along with APAGS-ACT, will represent all sub-fields of psychology equally in its legislative and advocacy efforts.

Lastly, Shannon will network to help facilitate the flow of communication between the APAGS Board and its constituents. Shannon is not only enthusiastic about her new role and working with the APAGS board, she is also excited about her opportunities to work with her Fordham colleagues and honored to represent you all in this nationally recognized position.
