    Succeed through scholarship, research, practice

    There are currently eight faculty members in the Education and School Psychology Department. Because we are a practitioner-oriented program, all of our core professors have practiced as school psychologists. Our faculty bring different and varied areas of interest and expertise to the department including:

    • Response to intervention
    • School-wide positive behavioral support
    • Violence and aggression in schools
    • School-based mental health
    • Early childhood

    Our professors involve graduate students in their research, invite them to attend state and national conventions, and work diligently to support them in all of their efforts.

    All graduate students work with an advisor from the Department of Educational and School Psychology.
