Andrew Suth, Ph.D.
Associate Professor, Clinical Psychology

I believe students succeed best in a supportive yet challenging environment. My teaching comes from a deep respect that students are motivated by their own curiosity and wish to learn. My role is to provide guidance and expertise through presentation of material, guided exercises, discussion and meaningful learning exercises. It is my goal that students feel empowered as emerging colleagues and professionals, absorb the material in way that spurs future, and are motivated to work hard to achieve their goals.
