Advising philosophy

Our program faculty members span a wide range of research approaches. Nevertheless, we are all psychological and educational scientists committed to training the next generation of leaders in the field. We do so by adopting an apprenticeship model. Although the details of this model look different for undergraduate and graduate students, the end goal is the same: to produce independent force for improving educational outcomes for all students.
