A big mission needs a big home

There’s no place like the Lone Star State. Everyone wants in, and we are no exception. Here’s four reasons why Dallas was the perfect location for our sixth campus.

Everything is bigger and better in Texas—us included. The Chicago School of Professional Psychology’s new location in Richardson, Texas, a suburb of Dallas, is already energized with friendliness and Southern hospitality.

Dallas is a one-of-a-kind community, full of unparalleled growth, promise, and charm. After all, there’s no place like the Lone Star State. We know that together, we can do great things—for Dallas, for Texas, and for communities across the country.

Our decision was easy: this was the best possible place for our newest campus. As we settle into our new home, we’re sharing what we’re looking forward to here and four visions for a joined future.

 

  1. Together, we’ll help improve the holistic health of every Texan.

One in five Texans experiences a mental health condition each year. With 216,974 mental health hospital visits in Dallas County in 2016, it is more necessary than ever for health care professionals to integrate some form of mental health training.

At The Chicago School, faculty employ the engaged practitioner model of education, allowing our students to help fill the growing gap between supply and demand for mental health care professionals. There are already great resources in place here, like Mental Health America of Greater Dallas, Texas Health Behavioral Health, and NAMI North Texas. You got this. We can help.

 

  1. Together, we will champion unheard voices and make a difference in the community.

A Bloomberg list of the 20 most diverse metro areas ranked Dallas #11, citing that minorities make up 51.7 percent of the population. Additionally, a study by Wallet Hub that looked at socioeconomic, cultural, and economic diversity listed Dallas as the fifth most diverse city in America.

The Chicago School of Professional Psychology has a long-held commitment to promoting cultural awareness. We’re thrilled to be able to work with and live among this incredible and multifaceted community.   

 

  1. Together, we’ll work to meet the growing demand for qualified professionals.

Listed as the sixth best place for business and careers and the #14 best city for job growth by Forbes, Dallas is an exciting place to be right now. In the education and health services sectors, employment increased by 14,000 in the Dallas metroplex—a 3.2 percent job growth rate, higher than the U.S. rate of 2.1 percent.

The Chicago School supports students learning in the field. Our Ph.D. in Organizational Leadership program encourages managers and supervisors to take on advanced roles while our Business Psychology program places students in today’s business environment. With this type of learning, we’re ready to create the future leaders of Dallas.

 

  1. Together, our education will be enriched by Dallas’s cultural greatness.

There’s a reason why Dallas’ slogan is “Big things happen here.” In addition to all of the growth, Dallas is a vibrant city, full of entertainment and culture. It was ranked #16 of the most exciting food cities in America by Zagat and is home to the Majestic Theater, Dallas Museum of Art, The Margot and Bill Winspear Opera House, and the largest contiguous arts district in the U.S. 

We know we have a lot to offer, but Dallas will contribute to our students’ experience and make their education better. Off campus, a whole world awaits—along with endless opportunities for new favorite local spots.  

And that’s just the short-list. We’re excited to explore all there is to offer and how we can grow, too—because together, we’re better.
