Taking Giant Leaps Toward Healthier, Happier Communities

The College of Health and Human Sciences (HHS) strives to be a leader and innovator as we engage with diverse communities to inform people’s behavioral choices, improve their health and enhance their quality of life. Through multiple clinics that promote healthy living and overall well-being, we offer valuable services to the community while providing meaningful real-world experience for undergraduate and graduate students and cutting-edge research facilities for HHS faculty.

Commitment to Diversity

We strive to create a safe, inclusive and affirming environment for all clients and staff. We hold a deliberately broad conceptualization of multiculturalism and diversity, with an effort to honor all the identities a person may hold, including racial identity, ethnic identity, sexual orientation, gender identity, religious and spiritual beliefs, immigration and acculturation status, ability status, socioeconomic status and more. Multicultural care is a cornerstone of our practice and of the clinicians’ training. All clinicians complete a separate course in multicultural education and diversity topics, and many of them are also actively engaged in Purdue’s Clinical Psychology Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Committee as well as other committees and research projects focused on anti-racism, inclusive practices and prejudice reduction.
