MISSION STATEMENT

The Latina/o Student Psychological Association (LSPA) is committed to providing a multifaceted awareness of both professional and educational resources to enhance the college experiences of dedicated students aspiring to serve underrepresented communities in the mental health arena. Our purpose is explicitly outlined in the following:

  • To facilitate the professional and career development of aspiring psychologists and other service providers who desire an education beyond the baccalaureate degree.
  • To assist undergraduates to develop a sense of community, highlighting the value of serving the Latina/o communities and other underserved groups.
  • To promote students’ educational experiences and expand multicultural awareness and training in the field of psychology.
  • To build a connection between undergraduate students, faculty/ staff, and community leaders, establishing a strong social network, both on and off campus.

 

PHILOSOPHY

This group’s mission and goals are founded on the five educational pillars (Castellanos, 2000). Specifically, the association will emphasize the value of academics, research, practical experience, leadership, and community service for a complete undergraduate experience. In addition, the cabinet recognizes the value of the five elements for the successful application of graduate school. Through programming, dialogues, workshops and other educational activities, LSPA aspires to assist students in acquiring a comprehensive education while attending to the five pillars throughout their experience at UC Irvine.
