Counseling Education Program

We are excited to facilitate your educational journey as you embark upon a degree specializing in helping others.

Mission Statement

The mission of the Counselor Education Program is to train prospective school and mental health counselors for the new century as agents of change, who have the ability to assess, develop, implement, and sustain up-to-date counseling initiatives that are representative of a multicultural and pluralistic society.
 
We support our students as they become critical thinkers, innovative practitioners, and leaders in the counseling profession and in their particular specializations. We promote the following ideas:
  • Excellence in ethical practice in teaching, clinical practice and service.
  • Free exchange of human and cultural richness for a global society.
  • Contributions to the greater understanding of values to promote the well-being of all people.
  • Promote a climate of social justice through self-awareness of self and others.
  • Ensure our identity as professional counselors maintained by CACREP 2016 accreditation standards.
