Diversity and Inclusion Departmental Statement
The Human Development and Psychological Counseling (HPC) Department seeks to educate practitioner-scholars who serve with humility, reflect on their own identities and positionalities, embrace equity and inclusion, and navigate the complex realities of doing social justice-based work. We are committed to creating a learning environment among students, staff, and faculty that fosters critical consciousness, values diverse identities, and engages in purposeful action toward dismantling systemic oppression in our fields.

As such, we strive to be transparent and responsive, reduce our role in perpetuating injustice, and work towards equity and justice with and on behalf of the students in our programs and in the communities that we serve.
