Ph.D. in Clinical Psychology
Faculty Mentors 2021-2022 Application Cycle
Each first-year graduate student is matched with a core faculty member who will serve as an advisor and research mentor to the graduate student during the initial years of the program. Upon entering the program, the faculty mentor works closely with each student to develop and guide their research projects. To facilitate this pairing, we require that each applicant select one or two core faculty members in the Clinical Psychology Program based on shared research and clinical interests, and describe in their application why they would like to be part of these research teams. Although a close fit between student and faculty interests is not always possible given the focus of the program and the number of core faculty, all faculty have experience working with students whose interests may not specifically align with theirs. In these instances, the faculty strive to support students in developing an excellent program of research. Below is a list of the core faculty members who will be accepting one or more new students for the 2022-2023 academic year.
