Saybrook University

Oakland, California, United States
Saybrook University provides rigorous graduate education that inspires transformational change in individuals, organizations, and communities, toward a just, humane, and sustainable world.

About

History

More than forty years ago, a group of leading psychologists gathered to form the first graduate school centered on the belief that every person is a work in progress and that each of us has the capacity and the responsibility for our own development. These scholars were the founders of the humanistic psychology movement. While the establishment of Saybrook Graduate School and Research Center was a momentous event, its founders understood that for Saybrook to help affect significant change in the world, the institution would need to be willing to change with it.

That was the beginning of a long journey that has seen Saybrook continually adapt in response to challenges of the day.

Education

Over its history, Saybrook University has grown to meet the needs of society by preparing scholars and practitioners to take leadership roles in inspiring transformational change. Saybrook scholar-practitioners unite “the library and the street” by relating scholarship and research to action and practice in a wide range of professional contexts.
