We greatly value our relationships with our students and it is our goal to foster a sense of community between our students, faculty, and community partners. This begins with the first contact between advisor and student. Your advisor is the person who will work with you to understand all of the requirements of the program, help you develop your plan of study, answer questions about registration, and guide you toward your career goal. This is an important relationship that we hope will make you feel more comfortable in our program as well as provide you with information. The advisor- student connection is vital in your personal and professional development. As faculty members, we enjoy this time we spend getting to know and mentor you. Our hope is that you continue to feel a part of our program even after you graduate, keeping us up to date on your personal and professional milestones.
To further promote our sense of community we have established a Facebook group page for current students and alumni. When you are accepted into the program you will be sent an invitation via email to join our Facebook group and we hope you will accept. On this site we post news about the program, important information about the profession of counseling, and share updates about students and alumni. We hope those of you still on Facebook will accept our invitation!
