    Thomas Vance

    Profile

    Thomas A. Vance, Ph.D. joined the department of psychology as a Postdoctoral Psychology Fellow in 2019. He received his B.A. degree in psychology from The University of West Georgia, and his M.A.Ed. and PhD degrees in Clinical Mental Health Counseling and Counseling Psychology from The University of Akron. He completed his clinical psychology pre-doctoral internship at Boston University School of Medicine, specifically at The Center for Multicultural Training in Psychology (CMTP) and a Postdoctoral Research and Clinical Fellowship at Columbia University Medical Center in the department of Psychiatry.

    Dr. Vance’s research, teaching, and professional service reflect his commitment to informing social justice efforts with scientific evidence and informing scientific advancements with social justice and multicultural considerations. Specifically, Dr. Vance’s research program focuses on the experiences and well-being of populations with multiple stigmatized identities, such as racial/ethnic minority and LGBTQ people of color. This research examines the nature of these experiences, their implications for psychosocial functioning such as health and academic self-concept, and their intersections across axes of inequality (e.g., homophobia, racism, sexism). True to counseling psychology values, Dr. Vance focuses on social justice, prevention, holistic wellness, and strengths in research and teaching.
