We strongly encourage applications 

from diverse candidates committed 

to issues of diversity and social justice.


The cornerstones of the MU SCS Internship are relationships and diversity. Our mentoring relationships, rooted in warmth, collaboration, and authenticity, assist interns in integrating their personal and professional identities. The MU SCS training program emphasizes multicultural experiences and employs a diverse staff with expertise and interest in multicultural issues. In essence, we help interns become the psychologists they want to be.  

The Miami University Student Counseling Service is deeply committed to the appreciation and celebration of diversity. We value students of all identities, including but not limited to those based on race, ethnicity, sex, gender expression, sexual orientation, socioeconomic status, nationality and citizenship status, age, body shape/size, religion, spirituality, ability, and ideology. We recognize the effects that discrimination, prejudice, and systemic issues of power and privilege can have on the life of a student. We strive to create a warm and welcoming environment where all students can feel supported, nurtured, and affirmed. As mental health professionals, we are trained to provide multiculturally informed services that meet the needs of all students while also honoring the uniqueness of each individual. All counseling services are confidential and are not part of the student academic record.
