St. Clair Drake Center
Several of our faculty are affiliated with the St. Clair Drake Center, a multidisciplinary university center that seeks to support scholarship into African and African-American Studies across disciplines. PsyD students can apply to be a PsyD student St. Clair Drake fellow, which entails a commitment to fostering the health and well-being of African-American individuals, families and communities through one's clinical and/or research work.
