One of the University of San Diego’s core values is community, which speaks to a commitment to creating an inclusive community respectful of the rights and dignity of the individual (see http://www.sandiego.edu/strategicdirections/mission_and_vision.php for discussion of the University’s core values). Congruent with this, the USDCC is committed to embracing diversity in all its forms. We expect our training staff and interns to have a respect for diversity and a commitment to personal growth in the area. As such, we value self-reflection, especially as it is translated into the action of creating safe and welcoming professional relationships. As professional psychologists and psychologists in training, we adhere to all aspects of the APA’s ethical code and treatment guidelines in all of our professional work.
Congruent with these aspirations, we welcome applicants in all the diversity they may bring, including but not limited to ability status, age, culture, gender, language, race, religion, and sexual orientation. We hope that applicants who have special needs during the application or interviewing process will feel welcome to let us know so accommodations may be arranged.
