The general purpose of the School Counseling Program in the Department of Counselor Education, Higher Education, and Educational Psychology is to educate students in the areas of school counseling, developmental guidance, and related psychological/educational services. Students develop the professional understanding, knowledge, attitude, and skills needed to assist individuals and groups in a multicultural, democratic society to achieve their maximum level of independence and functioning.

The philosophical framework encompasses enhancing personal growth and development; creating awareness of self in relation to society; developing an identity as a professional school counselor; and attaining the knowledge and skills to counsel effectively with diverse populations.
