Mission, Philosophy, and Objectives

Mission Statement

The mission of the Professional Counseling program is to help students develop essential knowledge, skills, and dispositions to function successfully as trauma-focused counselors working in mental health agencies, private practice, or elementary, middle, and high schools. We strive to attract a diverse group of students who have an allegiance to social justice and to advocacy for equal opportunity for all members of society, and who will make a strong commitment to their own academic achievement, professional development, and personal self-awareness and growth across the lifespan. Professional Counseling faculty train highly skilled counselors to assist individuals with social, emotional, and/or academic challenges. Information pertaining to diversity and trauma is emphasized and infused throughout the curriculum.
