School Psychology Research

UNO faculty and students ground themselves in being research driven, data-based practitioners. School psychology research teams (see below) give students first-hand experience in educational research. Additionally, students are highly encouraged to represent UNO by presenting their projects and research and local and national conferences.

In February of 2015, 2nd year student, Julia Temme, presented a research project from her work at the Munroe Meyer Institute at the Annual NASP conference in Orlando, FL.
