The Department of Psychology at ISU welcomes diversity and the department seeks applications from candidates who can contribute to the academic, social, and cultural diversity of the program and graduate student body.

The faculty endeavor to create a climate of understanding and to respect differences including differences in ethnic and racial heritage, gender, sexual orientation, age, socio-economic standing, and physical disabilities.

The faculty and graduate students are also strongly interested in enhancing research on multicultural issues. Current topics faculty and students are working on include:

  • The largest ever on-going study of African American families
  • Implicit biases towards individuals of color
  • Assessment of counselors stereotypes toward sexual minorities
  • The effect of multicultural counseling training in reducing implicit racial/ethnic  and sexual orientation biases
  • Communication in intimate heterosexual and same-sex relationships
  • Men’s issues and psychological adjustment
