The Psy.D. Program at Chestnut Hill College values and welcomes diversity in all its forms. The program encourages applications from students who represent diversity, as we believe that a diverse student body enriches the educational experience for all. The program sponsors three student groups that focus on diversity issues: the Rainbow Forum, the Human Rights Forum, and the Multicultural Forum .
All students are required to complete two courses on diversity issues in psychology and psychotherapy: GRCP 532 (The Role of Culture and Gender in Counseling and Psychotherapy) in Year I, and GRCP 816 (Advanced Topics in Human Diversity) in Year IV.
The Department of Professional Psychology subscribes to and practices a policy of nondiscrimination in admission, enrollment, and employment. This Policy prohibits discrimination on the basis of religion, age, race, color, national or ethnic orgin, sex, sexual orientation, disability or marital status.
Several faculty members have clinical and research interests related to human diversity.
