Oklahoma State University


A key value of the Marriage and Family Therapy Program at Oklahoma State University is the understanding, respect, acceptance, and equal treatment of others regardless of age, race, income, culture, ethnicity, sexual orientation, religion, and physical ability. It is expected that faculty, staff, and students will live by this value, whether it be with each other, with other professionals, or with clients. It is expected that during the program students will strive to learn about and understand the unique life experiences, values, practices, and beliefs of individuals from diverse backgrounds and will learn to respond sensitively and appropriately to client needs. Accordingly, we seek to recruit a diverse student body each year and also work to enhance the diversity of the clinical supervisors in the MFT program.

In accordance with COAMFTE standards, the following tables provide a snapshot of the racial and cultural diversity of the MFT faculty, supervisors, and student body:
