CMTP was founded in 1972 with a commitment to provide training in Multicultural Psychology.

We emphasize training in culturally competent and community-oriented approaches to psychological thought and practice. We aim to train and develop future leaders in the field of Psychology consistent with the American Psychological Association’s (APA) Guidelines on Multicultural Education, Training, Research, Practice and Organizational Change for Psychologists. Applicants with a demonstrated interest in issues of multiculturalism and diversity are strongly encouraged to apply.
