ILCC- The Chicago School of Professional Psychology
 
 
 
The Chicago School of Professional Psychology (TCSPP) has a long standing tradition of serving the community through community service, practicum and internship opportunities. Through the Community Partnerships Department, there are continuous opportunities to that benefits both the community and the TCSPP students in service, community, education, and innovation, which allowed it to be recognized by the President’s Higher Education Community Service Honor Roll since 2006. In 2015, with the increase of TCSPP’s academic departments service learning initiatives, students involved in these courses have indicated that service has been beneficial to their learning and comprehension of the course material. TCSPP will continue to grow in creating new opportunities for students through partnership development, encourage student Veterans to engage in service opportunities, and provide support to the Chicago family residence through Chicago High Schools in understanding the education system and processes. The Americorps VISTA at TCSPP will be primarily tasked with developing three large, ongoing projects at TCSPP. Firstly, The VISTA will serve as the on-ground liaison to the Military Psychology Student Group. We anticipate an increased veteran population entering graduate school in the next few years and recognize that a strong Military Psychology Student Group is essential. Secondly, the VISTA will continue developing partnerships with local K-12 afterschool programs. Lastly, the VISTA will research challenges faced by first generation students to increase their retention.
