Dr. Jennifer Rose

Dr. Jennifer Rose believes that the provision of academic equity for minority and low-income students is critical to the mission of social justice. Her efforts in this area are focused on advocacy work to support children impacted by exclusionary discipline policies as well as students with Individualized Education Plans (IEP’s).

As a nationally-certified school psychologist (NCSP) and licensed clinical psychologist, Dr. Rose has provided psychological services in diverse settings including traditional K-12 buildings, juvenile corrections, alternative schools, psychiatric hospitals, and community mental health. As a consultant with the former Illinois Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports (PBIS) Network, Dr. Rose guided educators in addressing issues related to school climate and student social-emotional needs. Dr. Rose led the implementation of universal screening in schools across the state of Illinois to help identify students for social-emotional interventions. Dr. Rose is currently a psychologist with Loyola Community and Family Services, a mental health clinic providing services for children and families in the Chicagoland area.
