ConCISE Center for Performance Management and Consulting

About ConCISE

The ConCISE Center is a student-run consulting firm that serves as the practice arm of the Los Angeles Campus’ Business & Industrial-Organizational Psychology Department. We provide a wide range of human capital consulting services to businesses and non-profit organizations by utilizing the skills and knowledge of our diverse student body as they complete their masters- and doctoral-level studies.

Our name, ConCISE, reflects the values of The Chicago School of Professional Psychology:  CONsulting within Southern California’s Communities through Innovation, Service, and Education.

With each successful project and professional connection made through ConCISE, our students gain valuable experience and share the benefits of business psychology consulting with the greater community. Also, all of our consulting work is either pro-bono or deeply discounted as part of our goal to provide services to the greater community.



  • “Your team did an excellent job preparing for the training, as well as implementing the workshops. Congratulations for leading such an enthusiastic, professional, and committed team.”

– Donna Scarantino, Project Assistant at AbilityFirst

  • “AbilityFirst has had the pleasure of working with the Concise team on three separate occasions and we could not be more satisfied with their professionalism and contribution. Our staff members benefitted greatly through the Concise team’s facilitation of small group discussions and through informative presentations.”

-Peter Yoou, Center Director, AbilityFirst
