Dedicated to Serving Local Populations
Our students, faculty and graduates are committed to serving the needs of local populations. As many of our students wish to complete their education in Hawai'i rather than move to the mainland for their training, we maintain a local Association of Psychology Postdoctoral and Internship Centers (APPIC) affiliated Internship Consortium exclusively for our interns. By the end of their clinical training, students possess well-developed and effective assessment and intervention skills, and practice in a highly ethical and culturally sensitive manner.
Focused on Diversity
Attention to issues of human diversity and social justice occurs throughout the curriculum and within a number of additional learning opportunities outside the classroom. Work with diverse and marginalized populations is a major focus of the teaching, scholarship and clinical practice of the faculty members at the Hawai'i School of Professional Psychology at Argosy University. As a whole, our faculty is committed to mentoring students who will provide effective and relevant services to under-served populations.
Creating Psychology Leaders
Our programs’ graduates consistently serve in leadership roles critical to the continued advancement of the psychology profession in Hawai'i. Numerous graduates are active in The Hawai'i Board of Psychology and the Hawai'i Psychological Association, where they have served as president, clinical division representative, diversity committee chair, legislative chair and federal advocacy coordinator.
