The University of Denver’s Morgridge College of Education (MCE) invites applications for a one-year, nine-month Visiting Assistant Professor of Practice of School Psychology in the Child, Family, and School Psychology (CFSP) Program in the Department of Teaching and Learning Sciences (TLS). This is a benefited, full-time, one-year visiting appointment for the 2019-2020 academic year.

Our Program philosophy is built upon a scientist-practitioner model of training emphasizing ecological, family- sensitive, prevention-oriented, empirically valid practice, and the highest standards of ethics and professionalism. We believe in a full consideration of human development and pedagogy, sensitivity to diverse human experiences and cultures, a focus on early prevention and supportive intervention, collaborative problem-solving, and the promotion of family involvement in human development and education.

Our Program mission is to provide students with the knowledge and skills relevant for collaboration with diverse families, students, educators, and professionals to meet the educational and mental health needs of all students and families within a rapidly changing, global society based on a strong understanding of the interrelationship between environmental, neurobiological, and cultural influences on development.

In sum, our training model is designed to prepare professional psychologists who are well grounded in the science of psychology; work in academic, research, and applied settings; emphasize child and family services in an educational setting; and have a social justice and ecological orientation. People who identify as belonging to diverse and underrepresented groups are valued in CFSP and encouraged to apply for this position.
