Psychology Department Sarata Diversity Enhancement

Named in honor of Dr. Brian Sarata, a former faculty member in the department, the Sarata Diversity Enhancement Committee within the Department of Psychology is dedicated to the promotion of scholarship for diverse populations or on diversity topics within the field. As part of this effort, we offer a graduate minor in diversity in psychology. More information can be found under the link on the minor. In addition, we bestow an annual diversity research award at both the graduate and undergraduate levels for students engaged in research on diversity topics or in research with an under-represented sample. More information on the awards can be found at the link, Levine Diversity Research Awards.

At this site, upcoming conference deadlines, professional standards, psychological issues and diversity, and important information for teaching and research are posted. For more information about diversity within the Department of Psychology, contact Dr. Cynthia Willis Esqueda at cwillis-esqueda1@unl.edu or at 402-472-3740.
