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 2014, 3rd year student, Magnum Peterson, presented his reserach project at the Annual NASP conference in Washington, D.C.
