The Dr. Edwin L. Herr Clinic is run by the Department of Educational Psychology, Counseling, and Special Education. The Herr Clinic serves two purposes: the Counselor Education Master's and Doctoral Programs use the Herr Clinic for clinical practicum in which they serve the University student population and the School Psychology Doctoral Program uses the clinic to provide services to children, adolescent, and young adult referrals from the community.
