group counseling to students, clinical supervision to trainees, and outreach and programming to the
University community, including consultation to staff and faculty regarding student mental health and

● Other duties as assigned
We seek candidates with evidence of training, expertise, commitment, and sustained engagement in
working with Multiracial/BIPOC and/or LGBTQIA+ students towards their personal development, wellbeing,
and academic success, through culturally responsive individual, group and community
interventions. Candidates must also demonstrate commitment to supporting the development and growth
of clinicians-in-training in the area of culturally responsive interventions.
In addition, we are seeking candidates who have experience and interest in providing specific support to
graduate and professional school students. The staff psychologist will have the skills and experience in
therapy, consultation and outreach to provide culturally responsive care to undergraduate and graduate
student populations, and will collaborate with campus and community partners to engage in meaningful
psycho-educational outreach to promote student success and well-being.
We are committed to hiring and retaining our staff to more fully reflect the diversity of our student body
and the society at large. Members of historically underrepresented groups in mental health professions
are strongly encouraged to apply.
At SCS, we recognize and acknowledge that emotional well being concerns are impacted by social
forces in the world related to power and privilege, colonization, discrimination, stereotypes, bias, and all
forms of marginalization and oppression. We identify that these forms of oppression are pervasive and
institutionalized and often go unacknowledged. This lack of acknowledgement can leave impacted
individuals and communities feeling alone, voiceless, and invalidated. Additionally, we identify the
multiple ways in which the mental health field has harmed and, in some cases, continues to harm people
from various marginalized identities.
Our staff and trainees actively work to address these forms of oppression in a culturally affirming
manner and consider the impact of oppression for students who seek services at SCS. We continue to
address this work from an empowerment and advocacy framework. We have additional information
