Competency Conference

2:00 – 7:30 PM


About the Conference

The Michigan School of Psychology (MSP) is hosting its first annual Cultural Competency Conference on Friday, May 17, 2019. The conference is co-hosted by Student Engagement, the Inclusion, Diversity, and Equity Alliance (IDEA), and the Psi Chi Chapter at MSP. As an APA accredited institution, MSP is “committed to the recognition of the important role that diversity and multiculturalism plays, both in terms of how individuals and groups define themselves, and how they approach others within the United States and globally.”1 The conference will be centered around presenters who are knowledgeable and/or immersed in different cultural communities sharing their experiences, insights, research and wisdom.  The goal of the conference is to support current and future practitioners in gaining a larger foundation within cultural competencies.   

We will host four rounds of concurrent 50 minute presentation sessions and then end the conference with a catered dinner and keynote speaker. This conference is open to students, psychologists, and members of the public.
