Learner Objectives

This session will help participants…

  1. create a supportive community and responsive supports for students of color in school psychology.
  2. instill social justice and diversity initiatives into your school psychology program's mission.
  3. establish external supports such as mentorship and professional networks to enhance the graduate student experience.


I feel like I filled the quota. This paper presentation will detail the experience of graduate students of color at a PWI in school psychology and their faculty's supportive efforts designed to create community and mentorship among the graduate students of color in and outside the classroom at a PWI.
