Why MiSPP?

Learning from the Inside Out

“It is incredible to look back to my early experiences as a Master’s student and to notice how much my world has since expanded. My personal and professional expansion has much to do with MiSPP’s culture, which understands the original meaning of the word educate (educare): “to bring forth.” As a result, my growth feels like it is mine, because it has been brought forth from that which has been with me all along. As I approach the last year of my doctoral experience, I feel confident and well- prepared for the complex clinical encounters ahead.” -Troy Piwowarski, PsyD Program
