Mission of the Counseling and Human Services Department
Our mission is to prepare knowledgeable, ethical, multi-culturally competent, and reflective school counselors and clinical mental health counselors. Faculty members embody diversity of experience and provide learners with a rigorous exploration of theoretical orientation and evidence-based practices in an environment that promotes personal growth and reflection. Graduates exemplify the learning, skills training, and dispositions that reflect both career-readiness and the highest standards of the counseling profession.
CACREP, as our accrediting body, invites us to share information with the public relating to our Masters of Science Degrees in Education which are Clinical Mental Health Counseling and School Counseling.
