UMass Psychology

About Us

The Department of Psychology at the University of Massachusetts is strongly committed to the support and promotion of cultural diversity with the University and surrounding community.  Cultural diversity encompasses differences and similarities in race, ethnicity, social class, religion, gender, sexual orientation, ability, and age.  Within the department, attention and sensitivity to diversity issues are fostered in course offerings, undergraduate programs, faculty and graduate student research, and clinical practice.  A core aspect of awareness and appreciation for diversity is that it promotes respect for others.  Diversity is especially valued and encouraged in the student body, faculty, and staff because it enriches both educational experieneces and the translation of psychological knowledge into practice.
