Diversity, Equity and Inclusion

The Counselor Education and Supervision degree program is intent to graduate the next generation of counseling leaders and advocates who are committed to excellence in practice and equity, diversity, inclusion and anti-racism.

The program is committed to improving diversity and inclusion within the counseling profession by: recruiting students from a variety of backgrounds; supporting their professional and personal growth; preparing them to work with individuals with marginalized identities; and working to end oppression within the field and the larger society.

The guiding philosophy, goals, policies and practices of the Counselor Education and Supervision Program are shaped by its central commitment: To provide learning experiences allowing each graduate to become a fully functioning helping professional in an evolving and diverse world.

Since the program's inception in the mid-1970s the recruitment and retention of a diverse cadre of students, particularly students with disabilities and students from other underrepresented groups, has been a program emphasis.
