Diversity Recruitment & Mentoring Initiative

The Massachusetts School Psychology Association is committed to the recruitment of Culturally and Linguistically Diverse (CLD) practitioners in the field. We acknowledge that there can be many financial and educational barriers to the application process. The Diversity Committee is disrupting these barriers through the MSPA Diversity Recruitment and Mentoring Initiative (DRMI). We ask that you, a CLD prospective student interested in a Massachusetts School Psychology program, apply to this program. Learn more by clicking here.
