Who are we?

The Education and Advocacy Committee

This committee is a grassroots movement started by graduate students, interns, post docs, faculty, and staff within the Department of Clinical and Health Psychology. In society, psychologists are given a unique position to be leaders in the community, in medicine, and in the political sphere. The Education and Advocacy Committee focuses on topics related to multiculturalism, cultural humility, personal and professional growth, and social justice.
