The Center for Deployment Psychology (CDP) trains military and civilian behavioral health professionals to provide high-quality, evidence-based behavioral health services to military personnel, veterans and their families. To date, there have been over 2.2 million deployments in support of the global war on terrorism and overseas contingency operations. To better fulfill the unmet deployment-related behavioral health needs of service members and their families, CDP, an innovative Department of Defense psychology training consortium, was established in 2006.
The Center for Health Disparities was established in 2003 in partnership with the University of Maryland Eastern Shore. The primary goal of the center is to improve the health of racial and ethnic minorities through research, education, and training.
