Commitment to Anti-Racism

The Master of Arts in Applied Child & Adolescent Psychology: Prevention and Treatment program is committed to promoting diversity and fostering equity and inclusion in all of its activities and strives to become a more active anti-racist community. 

Current and historical experiences of oppression and prejudice have disproportionately devalued people of different identities, including people of different races, cultures, ethnicities, sexual orientations, genders, gender identifications, abilities and socioeconomic statuses. We are committed to recruiting and retaining students from marginalized and underrepresented groups and doing more to create the kinds of institutional changes needed to achieve more equitable outcomes for our students.

We are also dedicated to training students to do effective clinical work with diverse groups of children, adolescents and their families. The program’s leadership, Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Committee and faculty are continually working to create a learning environment that supports a diversity of thoughts, perspectives and experiences, and honors all identities.
