Sometimes students have many offers to graduate programs and have to choose. Some things that may be important may not be obvious. If you are a female or black applying to clinical psychology programs look at the faculty. How many of the FULL TIME TENURED CLINICAL faculty are black or female? What is the proportion of males to females and whites to individuals of color? Do these ratios match the ratios for the department and the university? If not, how is that explained? How many women and black faculty have been tenured in the past decade or two or three? Are excuses or are you told that areas outside clinical or adjuncts fill those needs? Do the male white faculty claim to be sensitive to these issues and claim they cover any multi-cultural needs? Do they rely on films and outside speakers to fill the need? Have there been a string of female junior faculty who have left? What about junior faculty of color? How are the women in the clinical area treated? How are faculty from different minority groups and cultural backgrounds treated? Have they been marginalized? Do the faculty say things that downgrade the achievements or activities of the female faculty or of the African American faculty? Do they discourage students from working with them? How many graduate students do the tenured women and African American faculty have working with them? What excuses are given if things do not look right? What do the tenured African American faculty and women say about their experiences there? These questions should be asked by all students applying to any program since the answers will give you some insight into the values of the program, the mentality of the faculty and how you may be treated in the future if you choose to attend that program.
