Welcome from the Director

Tammy Gilligan, Ph.D.

Greetings and thank you for visiting the School Psychology website!

As Program Director I invite you to explore our community and training practices through the materials provided here. The School Psychology Program is fully approved by the National Association of School Psychologists and offers the Educational Specialist Degree. The program focus is on understanding children within a system’s context, including the school, family and community.  Faculty are dedicated to assisting our students in developing their role as a culturally competent school psychologist. Graduate students are prepared to be interpersonally skilled, data-oriented problem solvers. We work with each graduate student to develop their full capacity as school-based mental health providers.

Enjoy discovering our program. Please feel free to connect with me as you move forward on your School Psychology path!

With gratitude,

Tammy Dew Gilligan, Ph.D.
