Purpose

The purpose for this student organization is to allow graduate students in the School Psychology program here at LMU an opportunity to collaborate amongst its fellow cohorts. It is a student organization designed to build interpersonal relationships and share insight on experiences during the course of this program. It offers support for its members and demonstrates characteristics needed for leadership roles. It is a cohesive student organization intended to gain involvement from its graduate students outside of the classroom.

We are trained to do everything, but do nothing alone.
