PAU incorporates diversity into its curriculum, training and research.To coordinate these efforts, the campus established the Center for Excellence in Diversity in 2010. The Center is a national resource for culturally competent research, training and services for diverse or underserved populations. PAU infuses cultural competency throughout its curriculum with diversity-specific curricular efforts that include emphases in LGBTQ psychology, and diversity and community mental health. PAU’s Gronowski Center, a low-fee, community health clinic, provides doctoral students with clinical training, including the opportunity to work in two diversity-focused clinics. In addition, 13 research labs are focused on diversity related issues. La Clínica Latina – PAU’s Gronowski Center is home to La Clínica Latina, where students provide Spanish-language services to adults, couples, families, adolescents and children. Therapy and assessments are conducted in Spanish using evidence-based, culturally competent interventions. Latinx Task Force – Led by faculty, students, and staff from across PAU, the Latinx Task Force (LTF) implements projects serving the Latinx/Hispanic community within the university and the surrounding community. Alinne Barrera, Ph.D., PAU Associate Professor and 2018 NLPA Conference Chair, served as the inaugural chair of the LTF steering committee. Projects include outreach to PAU applicants and students, advocacy on issues such as DACA, guest lectures and more. A key goal is to support PAU in becoming a Hispanic Serving Institution.
