Preparing tomorrow’s psychologists for a diverse world

About SOPP Banner Image

Faculty

The School of Professional Psychology faculty members are role models for teaching, supervision, practice, and scholarship. All are dedicated to the practice model of training clinical psychologists. Several faculty members work on a full-time basis on grant and contract projects. Students may be able to work on the special projects, sometimes with funding.

The most diverse faculty and student body of any psychology program in the region, SOPP embraces its mission of serving the underserved and promoting cultural sensitivity.

Almost one half of our faculty hold the prestigious diplomate from the American Board of Professional Psychology. Over the years the faculty has produced a president of the American Psychological Association (APA) and is the only school to have three presidents of our professional society the National Council of Schools and Programs of Professional Psychology (NCSPP).
