DEI Committee

The Psychology Department Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) Committee is composed of two synergistic branches that meet both separately and together. Here's who we are and what we do.

To request feedback or support from the DEI Committee, please 

Student Branch

Faculty Branch

The Student Branch develops and leads the implementation of new initiatives to continuously shape the program to be conducive for students of all backgrounds. They also advise the leadership of the Psychology Graduate Program on policies and other initiatives. The Vice Chair for Graduate Education (currently Brian Trainor) consults, supports, and advocates for the Student Branch.
