What is SEPA? SEPA is the Southeastern Psychological Association founded in 1955. It is the largest psychological organization in the Southeast. SEPA’s mission is to stimulate the exchange of scientific and professional ideas across the diverse areas of psychological inquiry and application. SEPA consists of both professional and student members.
What is CEPO? SEPA was the first regional psychological association to establish a commission to enhance the role of women in the organization. The mandate of that early commission has subsequently been expanded to include underrepresented groups (i.e., race, ethnicity, gender, age, sexual orientation, and disability). The commission is now called CEPO (Committee on Equality of Professional Opportunity) and its goals are to increase membership and participation among these groups, to sponsor programming to address their concerns, and to provide role models at the annual meeting.
