About the University of Denver

The University of Denver (DU) is a top-ranked, private university in a thriving city at the base of the Rocky Mountains. DU is the oldest independent university in the Rocky Mountain region, with approximately 11,500 students in undergraduate and graduate programs. With over 300 days of sunshine a year, the nation’s largest city park system, and a thriving and fast-growing business community, a Pew Research Study lists Denver as the #1 city in which people want to live.

About the Graduate School of Professional Psychology

The Graduate School of Professional Psychology (GSPP) at DU was created in 1976 to house one of the first Doctor of Psychology (PsyD) programs in the country, under the then-new Vail training model (practitioner-scholar). GSPP provides four specialized master's programs: Sport Coaching, Sport and Performance Psychology, Forensic Psychology, and International Disaster Psychology: Trauma and Global Mental Health, as well as online certificates and continuing education. We also offer several fully online graduate certificates in sport, strength and conditioning, and fitness coaching.

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. GSPP has developed a collegial atmosphere with significant opportunities for creativity, teamwork, and innovation.

Knowledge of diversity, equity, and inclusion guides GSPP in its 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.
