The UNO school psychology program’s mission is to graduate students who have met high levels of academic excellence relevant to the knowledge and skills in the profession of school psychology and are engaged in and committed to the community. The program is designed to prepare graduates to function as scientist-practitioners in service to children and their families, schools, and communities. The program emphasizes an indirect service delivery approach that is oriented in data-based problem-solving and is responsive to cultural and ecological contexts. Although indirect approaches are emphasized (e.g., consultation, assessment, prevention, and early intervention), graduates are prepared to apply direct psychological services (e.g., individual-, group-, and systems-level interventions) when conditions warrant.
