Our PsyD faculty are deeply committed to preparing program graduates to lead and serve, and our PsyD students have a long and distinguished track record of professional success. Bonnie Gunzenhauser, PhD Dean, College of Arts and Sciences

The American Psychological Association Commission on Accreditation (CoA) has reaffirmed full accreditation of Roosevelt’s doctoral program in clinical psychology (PsyD) for another 10 years, the maximum time permitted between reviews. The next site visit will be scheduled for 2029.

The commission praised Roosevelt’s PsyD Program for its practitioner-scholar model that prepares graduates to practice health service psychology through a successful training program. Roosevelt’s PsyD program affords students ample opportunities for peer interaction, support, and socialization. The program faculty were recognized for the superior education, training, and mentorship they provide to students, consistent with the program’s aim to promote student success.

“We are thrilled to receive this affirmation of the quality of our PsyD program,” said College of Arts and Sciences Dean Bonnie Gunzenhauser. “Our PsyD faculty are deeply committed to preparing program graduates to lead and serve, and our PsyD students have a long and distinguished track record of professional success. Congratulations to all who helped to secure this outcome.”
