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. More than one quarter of our faculty are prestigious diplomates from the American Board of Professional Psychology. Over the years, one faculty member served as president of the American Psychological Association (APA), and three presidents of the professional society the National Council of Schools and Programs of Professional Psychology (NCSPP) have been members of our faculty.

Several faculty members have grant and contract projects. Students may be able to work on the special projects, sometimes with funding. Please click on any faculty member's names listed to see their interests. View 2017 Faculty Highlights (PDF).
