Diversity in Psychology Program, which will be

on our Diversity in Psychology Program page.

The Department of Psychology at the University of Minnesota strongly values cultural and individual diversity, and the importance of equal access to educational opportunities. The Department of Psychology is home to internationally known scholars with research expertise in ethnic minority mental health, intergroup relations, educational disparities, cross-cultural psychology, women's health, physical disabilities, adoption, and more. We affirm the mission, policies, and practices articulated by the University of Minnesota Office of Equal Opportunity and Affirmative Action and the Office of the Vice President and Vice Provost for Equity and Diversity.

The University of Minnesota strives to advance research within topics focused on underrepresented minority groups in the behavioral sciences while providing a nurturing environment for students to explore and thrive in their areas of interest. The University of Minnesota values its diverse population and boasts an inclusive environment that fosters academic and personal growth. A fundamental goal of the University is to create a climate of equity and diversity to the benefit of all faculty, students, and staff.
