“Doctoral students and faculty at LIU Brooklyn campus are hard at work in their research, clinical experiences, and academic coursework, but you won’t hear frantic footsteps and harried voices when you approach the Psychology Department on the 8th floor. Walking through the light wooden doors of the LIU Clinical Psychology program, you are greeted by modern glass-walled rooms, soft lights, and students gathered cozily on couches in thoughtful and engaged conversation. It’s the things that you may overlook on first glance - a faculty’s hand on a student’s shoulder offering advice on the research design of a study; a second-year student peering over the stats book of a first-year student explaining a data set; a friendly joke and nudge passed between professor and graduate assistant as they exchange morning greetings. As a graduate student in the LIU community, these supportive relationships distinguish the program in poignant ways. The pressures of competition amongst peers are nonexistent; instead, an atmosphere is born of common goals, collaborative work, and nurturance, as students and faculty alike push themselves towards excellence as scholars and clinicians.” – a doctoral student
