Diversity in Psychology

The graduate students and faculty in the Psychology Department at the University of Virginia are committed to promoting a diverse body of students and faculty and establishing an environment that facilitates understanding of different perspectives and beliefs. We value research on underrepresented populations as well as investigation of psychological processes that forward the progress and scientific knowledge of a diverse society. We believe that diversity is an integral aspect of an inclusive and vibrant field of psychology.
