The purpose of this study was to investigate ethnically and racially diverse school psychology students' experiences with racial microaggressions in school psychology graduate training. Through a national survey of ethnically and racially diverse school psychology students (N = 228), the study examined if level of graduate training (i.e., interns versus noninterns) affects diverse ethnic and racial groups and their experience of workplace and school microaggressions. Although the experience of racial microaggressions was not found dependent on level of graduate training, there was a main effect for ethnic and racial group classification and the significant difference in the means of racial microaggressions were between Black and multiethnic participants. Across all groups, Black interns reported experiencing the highest frequency of workplace and school microaggressions. Implications for university- and field-based intern supervisors regarding addressing racial microaggressions are provided.
