University "Conflict of Interest" Statement
The Illinois School Psychology Internship Consortium (ISPIC) is sponsored by and largely funded by the four Illinois doctoral granting universities including Illinois State University, Loyola University at Chicago, Northern Illinois University and The Chicago School of Professional Psychology. In addition, annually, Colleague Institutions across the country can choose to contribute to the maintenance of accredited internship opportunities. Applicants for the consortium enrolled in these institutions will not be given preferential treatment by any of the partnering sites. Rather, all applications are judged based on their unique qualifications. Please see our Conflict of Interest Policy. If you have any questions or concerns related to this issue, please contact ISPIC Director, Dr. Brenda J. Huber.
