Faculty Exchange

A total of six faculty exchange visits are planned over the duration of three years of this project.

An initial team of Miami University faculty (Aaron Luebbe, PhD; M. Cameron Hay, PhD; Joseph Schroer, PhD; and Vaishali Raval, PhD) visited Christ University in January 2016:

  • Over the course of a series of team meetings, faculty groups worked toward Objective I (finalizing a sampling plan and survey instrument for the needs assessment) and objective III (forming peer mentoring groups for capacity building of faculty)

  • Miami and Christ faculty co-led focus group discussions with students and mental health practitioners to learn about their experiences of mental health training and further training needs
  • Miami faculty sat in on clinical psychology graduate courses to learn about the curriculum, pedagogy, and student engagement at Christ. Miami faculty also delivered guest lectures and interacted with students in two undergraduate psychology honors courses and a graduate course on lifespan development
