Program Diversity and Inclusivity

A key value of the Marriage and Family Therapy Program (MFT) at Oklahoma State University is the understanding, respect, acceptance and equal treatment of others regardless of age, race, national origin, gender, gender identity, relationship status, income, socioeconomic status, culture, ethnicity, sexual orientation, religious or spiritual beliefs or affiliations, health status and disability. It is expected that faculty, staff, and students will live by this value, whether it be with each other, with other professionals or with clients. It is expected that during the program students will strive to learn about and understand the unique life experiences, values, practices and beliefs of individuals from diverse backgrounds and will learn to respond sensitively and appropriately to client needs. Accordingly, we seek to recruit a diverse student body each year.


The OSU Marriage and Family Therapy program does not discriminate based on race, age, gender, ethnicity, sexual orientation, relationship status, gender identity, gender expression, socioeconomic status, disability, health status, religious or spiritual belief or affiliation, national origin, or veteran status in any of its activities or policies relating to students, faculty, including instructors, supervisors, other relevant educators and professional staff.
