Message from the Chair

The mission of the Department of Educational Psychology is to promote the development and application of scientific knowledge. To do so, our faculty members are committed to:

    • Producing high-quality, innovative research and scholarship;
    • Providing effective and culturally inclusive instructional technologies to prepare practitioners and researchers to use the tools, resources, and strategies necessary to improve the educational experience of all learners;
    • Preparing culturally competent scientist-practitioners and researchers to effectively contribute to the applied psychological development and well-being of children and adolescents;
    • Providing responsive educational and psychological services to the local community, schools, and beyond; and,
    • Engaging in participatory and leadership roles in local, national, and international institutions and organizations.

Our students and graduates have the knowledge and skills necessary to engage in scholarly inquiry, to deliver accountable, research-based services, and to understand how to use psychology as a force for positive change. Our faculty members are involved in high-impact research projects and participate in local and national professional organizations. Further, the department has been successful in developing effective partnerships with local school districts and community agencies, which gives our students an advantage when seeking practicum and internship opportunities.

Please let me know if I can provide additional information about our programs or facilities. You can reach me at 210-458-2650 or jeremy.sullivan@utsa.edu. I look forward to hearing from you.
