The School also has a partially affiliated, APA-accredited internship consortium, and several in-house and satellite training clinics that serve Denver and the surrounding communities. As a professional school, GSPP promotes and utilizes high-level pedagogy that integrates applied practice, theory, research, and scholarship. All GSPP programs provide comprehensive academic and applied training within an academic environment that values cooperation and collaboration and fosters critical thinking and self-determined functioning.

Knowledge of diversity, equity, and inclusion guides GSPP in the mission to be as welcoming and inclusive as possible to all students, staff, and faculty. GSPP is strongly committed to building a diverse and inclusive educational environment, which is in full accord with the value that DU places on diversity, equity, and inclusion . This includes acknowledging the family needs of faculty, including dual career couples and single parents. The search committee is especially interested in candidates who will contribute to the diversity, equity, and inclusion of our academic community. We welcome applications from individuals who may have taken a nontraditional career path, taken time off for family or personal reasons, or who have achieved excellence in careers outside of academia.
