  • Amity Noltemeyer, Professor, Miami University
  • Julie Morrison, University of Cincinnati
  • Susan Davies, University of Dayton


The shortage of school psychologists in the United States jeopardizes the capacity of schools to meet student needs of all students. This study examined the progression of school psychologists through the professional preparation-to-practice pipeline, examining program admission and completion rates, as well as graduates’ status in the profession 1-year, 3-years, and 5-years following internship. Attendees will discuss the study’s results, including the need for targeted, personalized efforts for recruiting graduate students with minoritized cultural identities.
