Welcome to the website for the Student Affiliates in School Psychology (SASP) chapter at the University of Nebraska - Lincoln (UNL). We appreciate your interest in our program and are excited to share information about our students and activities that we enjoy around town. Students from across the country have come to Lincoln to live and learn in an exciting and emerging location. Lincoln offers many diverse options with regard to theater, music, dining, shopping, and culture. Lincoln has been consistently recognized for its affordability, quality of life, and as one of the best cities for career and business. While our program is consistently regarded as one of the top school psychology programs in the country, our students and faculty are also fortunate to live in an area with a number of exciting social and career options.

Community Service

Students are involved in many activities throughout the program and the larger Lincoln community. We have participated in many community service projects over the years, such as Heartland Big Brothers Big Sisters Bowl for Kids Sake, Lincoln Literacy's Scrabble Scramble, and continue to be active in community service projects today. Over the years, a consistent number of students have been elected to leadership positions at the university and national level. These students have worked with state organizations, national professional organizations, the faculty at UNL, and other faculty across the country to improve psychological service provision for children.

Student Activities

In addition to working with each other on a consistent basis, we actually enjoy spending time with each other outside of school! Our program has many social events throughout the year in which the students and faculty spend time together. As you will see from our pictures, we’re not a bad group to hang out with! When new students enter our program, they are paired with an advanced student who serves as their mentor. Mentors keep in touch with incoming students throughout their time in the program to provide helpful guidance with regard to navigating and adapting to Lincoln and the community, understanding departmental norms, choosing courses, completing research projects, and coping with concerns as they arise. It is always helpful to have another experienced student to lean on for advice and many of these relationships continue after our graduate training is complete.

As you can see, we are very proud of the many opportunities offered by our program both in and outside of the classroom. We hope this information is helpful in your search for a training program that matches your educational and personal needs. If you have any questions about the program or life in Lincoln, please do not hesitate to contact any of the students listed throughout these pages.
