In this challenging economy, The Chicago School has been able to maintain strong enrollment, hire new faculty, introduce new programs, and champion initiatives that provide our students and faculty with opportunities to meet the growing mental health needs in our communities. These successes all point to our proven track record in preparing students to become highly qualified psychology practitioners.
We continue to maintain our strong position by ensuring that our programs are innovative and market-relevant, provide outstanding clinical and externship experiences and supervision, and are focused on the education and skills necessary to succeed in and be a part of the transformation of our healthcare system today.
But our ability to continue to innovate, and support our mission of developing diverse, culturally sensitive practitioners who engage with their communities and are committed to serving the underserved, is dependent on the ongoing support of our alumni and friends. We ask you to join us in making a gift to this year’s Annual Fund Campaign. Your generous contributions are critical to the success of our initiatives. Initiatives that have:
• Provided scholarship support to help students continue to unlock their potential and realize their professional ambitions.
• Enabled students to develop expertise in working with victims of trauma through participation in our Global HOPE Training Initiative in Rwanda, which trains teachers and childcare workers to address the devastating effects of the 1994 genocide.
• Reduced the stigma of mental illness among Latinos, African Americans, youth, veterans, and other groups through the activities of the Naomi Ruth Cohen Institute of Mental Health Education.
These are just some of the ways that we have advanced our mission and provided an excellent educational experience for our students. You can view our full list of initiatives here. Your support in these difficult times is the key to the future innovation and impact of The Chicago School.
Please make a gift today. Together we can make such a difference!
