We are a historic institution with a multicultural reputation: the first institution specializing in graduate studies in psychology in the Caribbean and mainland North America.
Carlos Albizu-Miranda recognized the need to view psychological assessment and intervention from the perspective of the population it serves. He is renowned as an educator, the founder of the institution that bears his name, and the first president of the National Hispanic Psychological Association.
Over the years, Albizu University has expanded upon its mission to train culturally sensitive professionals from diverse backgrounds. We distinguish ourselves through an educational philosophy based on a commitment to social responsibility, characteristic of all our programs and services.
Carlos Albizu-Miranda believed that “love reaches beyond knowledge.” Albizu University continues to uphold this value, along with excellence in academic programs and services, respect for diversity, and ethical behavior at all organizational levels.
