The Tufts Department of Education offers a unique graduate program in School Psychology, which seeks to engage its diverse group of students in critical conversations regarding race, class, culture, language, gender, and sexuality in schools. The hallmark of the program is its pre-practicum experience: students are placed in urban school systems, where they complete a year of supervised fieldwork and gain a thorough understanding of school psychology for today’s diverse educational environments.
In the department’s new video, current students and faculty highlight the department’s collaborative environment, commitment to clinical skill-building, innovative developmental approach, and focus on professional development. Check out the video here, and read some quotes from faculty members below:
Professor Silas Pinto:
“We’re trying to think about school psychology in a holistic way”
Professor Erin Seaton:
“In the school psychology program, there’s such a strong emphasis on understanding the ways race, class, gender, economics, and culture all impact the student’s experience.”
Members of the Tufts chapter of the National Society of Black Engineers (NSBE) strive to inspire a new generation of engineers and make them realize that they too can make an impact on the world. In line with this effort to inspire, they created this video for the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) “How Engineers Make a World of Difference” scholarship competition.
The competition tasks students “to create the most effective two-minute video clips reinforcing in a personal profile — for an 11-to-13-year-old “tweener” audience — how engineers improve the world.”
Watch and be inspired!
