Transcript of School Counseling Program

Mission Statement
Prepare school counselors to become leaders, advocates and system change agents in our diverse schools.

School counselors learn to design, develop, implement and evaluate their comprehensive school counseling program to ensure that every student receives developmentally appropriate competencies in academic, career and personal/social development.

School counselors become professional student advocates who promote equity and access to a rigorous education for every student and who work to prevent and remove barriers of learning.

Graduate students develop as culturally competent leaders in educational reform and social justice in the schools and communities they serve.
