Ways to Support GSPP Faculty Research & Scholarship

We're leading psychology education.

Throughout our history, GSPP has been a pioneer in advancing innovative solutions to match evolving needs. GSPP provides a combination of generalist and specialty experiences in the classroom, clinic and community, producing graduates who can effectively meet the needs of their clients. With your help, we're determined to strengthen our academic programs and increase opportunities for our graduate students to serve the community while they are still in school.

Dean’s Innovation Fund

Since 1976, we have been advancing the public good through innovative research, service, and training, meeting the mental health care needs of diverse and underserved populations in Denver and beyond—improving the lives of individuals, families, and communities. The Dean's Innovation Fund is the School's annual fund and supports innovation, new programming, curriculum development, faculty research and support, student financial aid, and student life activities.

Sport Coaching Gift Fund

Psychologists and sport psychologists were pioneers to study coach effectiveness and coach education. In recent years, coach education at a University setting has become more popular, and more important to produce quality coaches. The Sport Coaching program is the only Master’s level degree program in coaching offered in a school of psychology in the country. Our program builds upon the innovative preparation of the GSPP and the successful Master of Arts in Sport & Performance Psychology, but diverges in important ways. The fully online MA in Sport Coaching program is committed to the personal and professional growth of our students and coaches in the online classroom, and on the field, court, rink, pitch, mat, pool, range and everywhere else sport is played!
