“Preparing Psy.D. students to address the mental health needs of our communities and individuals requires substantial high-level education and clinical work in the field,” said Shelley Robbins, Ph.D., Dean of the School of Arts & Sciences.
“While working with the Commission on Accreditation through the accreditation process, we were pleased to share what the students of our Psy.D. program learn in our classroom and their accomplishments while engaged in the program,” said Diane Menago, Psy.D., Associate Professor and Program and Clinical Training Director of the Psy.D. program.
