School of Counseling and Social Service Mission and Vision


Mission
The School of Counseling prepares competent and confident master’s level professional counselors and doctoral level counselor educators and supervisors to address current counseling and educational needs of diverse and multicultural populations across environments and to provide prevention and intervention strategies for maintaining current and future mental health and wellness. Faculty and administrators are committed to preparing adult learners as scholar-practitioners, advocates, and leaders who promote positive social change worldwide on both the individual and systemic level. Students are mentored in a technologically advanced milieu by a global faculty community of doctoral level scholars with a breadth of personal and professional experiences and expertise. Graduates will be equipped with knowledge of contextually and culturally relevant applications and skills that enhance their abilities to ethically practice in a myriad of settings.

Vision
The School of Counseling envisions a future where students and faculty join together as scholar-practitioners to apply their acquired and generated knowledge to address critical social problems in such a way as to promote positive social change in a global community.
