Our mission
We focus on developing school psychologists as scientist-practitioners, who do whatever it takes to make a difference in the psychoeducational functioning of children.

This means that professional school psychologists utilize their training and skills to positively impact children and have expertise in assessment, evaluation, intervention, consultation, and collaboration, and they use these skills within a multi-tiered support system framework to help ensure that all children experience success in school. School psychologists are not limited to considerations of disability, but are trained to work with parents, teachers, and the community to create a positive educational experience for all children.
