School of Counseling

Return to: Vision, Mission, and Goals  


The School of Counseling prepares both master’s-level professional counselors and doctoral-level counselor educators and supervisors to serve the mental health needs of diverse individuals, groups, couples, and families. The School and faculty are dedicated to preparing adult learners as scholar-practitioners, advocates, and leaders who promote positive social change in the counseling and counselor education professions. Students are mentored by a global faculty community of doctoral-level scholars with a breadth of personal and professional experiences. Graduates will be equipped with knowledge of contextually- and culturally-relevant applications and therapeutic skills that enhance their abilities to excel in unique practice and education environments.


Counseling faculty, as scholars-practitioners, and students of the School of Counseling apply their knowledge and skills to enhance the counseling profession through research, empirically-based practice, and a commitment to positive social change.
