Our program strives to provide doctoral students with both research and applied experiences in academic, behavioral, and social-emotional support, and has a proven history of success in training and placing graduate students with a 100% APPIC Phase I match rate in 2018. Scholars with an interest in conducting research with or supporting practice for students who are culturally or linguistically diverse are highly encouraged to apply.

Minimum Qualifications include: Earned doctorate in School Psychology, credentialed school psychologist, university-level teaching experience, experience advising graduate students’ theses and/or dissertations, demonstration of an ongoing research program.
