Ecological / Community Psychology

The Ecological / Community Psychology Program at Michigan State University is the oldest and largest Community Psychology program in the United States, with 9 nationally and internationally recognized core faculty and graduate alumni working in universities and communities around the country. Our goal is to promote social justice and empowerment for disenfranchised populations. We accomplish this by working within communities to address systemic issues and create social change. Our approach to community research and action emphasizes the relationship between individuals and the larger systems in which they are embedded.
