CCSP stands unequivocally united with the Black Lives Matter movement. The mission of our department is to train the next generation of diverse scholars in applied psychology. This work begins at home, interrupting the ways anti-Black racism shows up in our teaching, research, and the clinical services we provide to our local community. It is only through long-term commitment to this work that every Black student, staff and faculty member in CCSP can thrive. We commit to taking the following steps to commit to social justice and racism efforts:

  • The impact of racism and anti-racist scholarship, education, and clinical practices will be incorporated in courses.
  • A plan to successfully recruit and retain Black scholars, including students and faculty, will be developed.
  • Faculty, staff, and students will engage in training and critical conversations on the role of racism, white supremacy, and social justice work within academia, the GGSE, and CCSP.
