mission of the Psychology faculty is to engage students in
active, reflective learning in the broad discipline of psychology.
We strive to provide an open, supportive and diverse environment
that emphasizes knowledge of the theory and content of psychology
as well as development of skills such as critical thinking,
use of research and evaluation methods, and creative application
of psychology to human concerns and development.
Our goal is excellence in teaching and research. We value
our role as mentors to our undergraduate and graduate students.
Helping our students attain their educational and career goals
is one of our central values. The psychology faculty is also
actively committed to conducting high quality research, presenting
scholarly work at professional conferences and providing service
to the university and community. We endeavor to foster collaborative
relationships with colleagues from other disciplines and to
cultivate the ethics and values of psychology with our students.
We strive to be sensitive to the special issues of life in
border communities and celebrate the rich diversity within
our university and the Laredo community.
