Caitlin Brown is currently a senior at Southern Oregon University, anticipating graduation summa cum laude in December 2013 with a Bachelor of Science in Psychology and minor in Spanish. After the completion of her undergraduate degrees, Caitlin is interested in pursuing a doctoral program in school psychology with a multicultural and/or bilingual emphasis. Caitlin is predominantly interested in working collaboratively with students, administrators, teachers, family, and community members to create a healthy environment that promotes the flourishing of students academically, socially and emotionally.

Caitlin is a first generation, low-income student who understands the importance of positive role models within a child’s life that promote self-understanding, self-respect, open-mindedness, love and the pursuit of self-enrichment and higher education. Within the field of school psychology, Caitlin’s research interests include resiliency, social emotional learning, and culturally appropriate counseling techniques.

Caitlin’s plans for her final year at SOU include studying abroad in Guanajuato, Mexico and expanding her research portfolio. She plans to continue actively participating in the Southern Oregon University Psychology Club, the Psi Chi International Honor Society for Psychology, Omnicron Delta Kappa, and as a teaching assistant for Psychology Department professors.
