Mission Statement

The Wisconsin School of Professional Psychology (WSPP) has as its goal the provision of a doctoral-level education that emphasizes the acquisition of the traditional skills that defined the profession in the past while staying open to emerging developments, cultural diversity and change. Our program balances scientific knowledge and practical instruction, taking its impetus from the recommendations of the American Psychological Association’s Vail conference. The School’s doctoral program is accredited by APA and is continually evaluated to assure compliance with those requirements. WSPP is committed to training professional clinical psychologists who are sensitive to cultural differences and skilled in service provision to diverse populations. The richly diversified community that surrounds us enhances our training.
