Congratulations to EWU McNair Scholar Arcelia Madrigal! Arcelia has been accepted to the University of Oregon for the Master’s Program in School Psychology. The program is accredited by the National Association of School Psychologists and approved by the Oregon Teachers Standards and Practices Commission for the educational licensure of school psychologists in the state of Oregon.
Arcelia is majoring in Psychology with a minor in Special Education and earning a certificate in Social Emotional Learning for Educational Equity. Arcelia is the Vice President of Eastern Washington’s Psi Chi chapter and an active member of Eagle Ambassadors. Her 2022 McNair Summer Research project, under mentor Dr. Susan Ruby, was titled Cultural Experience and Perception of Social Emotional Learning and focused on how students across culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds might differ in experiences that impact their perception and application of SEL. Arcelia is presenting her research at the NASP (National Association of School Psychologists) Annual Convention in Denver this week.
The EWU McNair staff are excited for Arcelia. We know she will contribute a thoughtful perspective and become a leader of her learning community in any graduate program she attends, and go on to an impactful career in research and the practice of school psychology.
