Among the Department of Psychology’s goals is to use the tools and perspectives of psychological science to promote positive change within ourselves, our field, and our world. Within the discipline, psychology explores factors influencing human behavior and interactions. It is important that this work recognizes the diverse experiences of individuals. The Department of Psychology is committed to promoting an inclusive experience and environment, along with the tools for success, for all members of the department’s community and beyond.

The JMU Department of Psychology values our transgender students and colleagues. We affirm the positions of the Association for Psychological Science and the American Psychological Association that gender-affirming care and support is critical for transgender people's health and well-being. Transgender Dukes deserve to feel safe on our campus.
