Our mission is to prepare graduates to work as professional Counselors in Clinical Mental Health, Higher Education, and K-12 school settings with diverse clients presenting with a range of concerns, mental and emotional disorders. We intentionally seek to foster helping professionals who create inclusive spaces of responsiveness, respect, and appreciation for all forms of diversity; developing cultural proficiency in the service of promoting mental health and wellness to benefit local and global communities.
