Diversity and Non-Discrimination Statement
The staff at Student Health and Counseling Center Internship training program is committed to the affirmation of diversity in all of our endeavors. We strive to recruit interns who are ready to embrace the challenges and rewards of providing services to a varied and broad-ranging population. Our training program respects and values diversity and attends to this throughout clinical practice with our diverse client population, as well as during supervision and intern seminars. The learning environment within the training program is one of inclusion and every effort is made to facilitate a climate of safety and respect for all staff and interns.
The Student Health and Counseling Center adheres to an expected competency in individual and cultural diversity. Training experiences are offered to ensure interns are provided ample opportunity to gain competency in this domain. Interns are exposed to clients of differing ethnicities, cultures, sexual orientations, socioeconomic backgrounds, religious affiliations, ages, genders and abilities in order to expand sensitivity to issues related to diversity. Seminars are provided throughout the year addressing various topics related to diversity and intercultural inclusion. Supervision, both individual and group, provides additional learning support for interns to increase awareness and foster comfort with multicultural experiences.
The Student Health and Counseling Center welcomes applicants from diverse backgrounds. Diversity of our staff and interns contributes to a more well-rounded internship experience. The training program provides equal opportunity to all prospective interns and does not discriminate because of a person’s race, color, religion, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, age, national or ethnic origin, physical or mental disability, marital or veteran status or any other factor that is irrelevant to success as a psychology intern. Applicants are individually evaluated in terms of quality of previous training, practicum experiences, and fit with the internship program and goals. If accommodations are required, the applicant or intern should contact the assistant director of internship education and training to initiate this process.
