UW’s Brockberg is new State Advocacy Coordinator for Wisconsin

February 16, 2015

Dustin Brockberg, a first-year doctoral student with UW-Madison’s Department of Counseling Psychology, is the newly appointed State Advocacy Coordinator (SAC) for Wisconsin.

In this role, Brockberg’s primary duties include working with campus representatives from universities across the state of Wisconsin to ensure that information from the American Psychological Association of Graduate Students (APAGS) is being disseminated to the larger student body.

The two-year term as SAC also involves assisting campus representatives in their advocacy projects and efforts, helping with award nominations for the APAGS Advocating Coordinating Team, and coordinating a state meet-up with all campus representatives.  This position also leads a local office visit of federal officials from Wisconsin, and creates and implements an advocacy project.

Brockberg’s project for this year is the formulation of the Committee on the Advancement of Advocacy within Wisconsin (CAAW). The purpose of this committee will be to discuss local, state and federal advocacy efforts and barriers. Furthermore, the committee will work with the Wisconsin Psychological Association to create an open dialogue of psychological theory and research, and its impact on current and future advocacy efforts.
