DR. DIONNE PATRICIA STEPHENS
I have had the pleasure of supervising both graduate and undergraduate students. Some undergraduate students are trained in my Health Disparities and Cultural Identities (HDCI) research lab, while others work with me via fellowship programs (McNair Scholars Program, Honors College ARCH, Global Health Research Program). Typically, undergraduate students gain research experience for graduate or medical school by volunteering in my research lab. Interested undergraduates should review the HDCI lab website content and complete the application process outlined there.
At the graduate level, in addition to advising my own doctoral students (see below) I serve graduate students' dissertation and theses committees across disciplines. Within psychology, I have served on behavioral analysis, clinical, legal and industrial/ organization program students' committees. Outside of psychology, I’ve enjoyed contributing to the development of graduate students' earning degrees in anthropology, education, geography, nursing, public health, sociology, and social work. Students that need expertise in the areas of gender, identity development, racial identity, sexual health, popular culture, health disparities, or qualitative methods typically seek me out to contribute as a member of their dissertation committee. Given the number of requests I receive, I only serve on five committees outside the Department of Psychology at any given time.
