Program Overview

The School Counseling and Pupil Personnel Services Credential program prepares school counselors to act as social justice advocates and agents of change in urban schools and diverse multicultural settings. We endorse the use of data-informed decision-making and evidence-based practices to effect systemic change in schools and the community.  As leaders of educational reform and the profession, our school counselors are trained to advocate for equity, achievement, and opportunity for all students. The American School Counselor Association’s (ASCA) National Model, which promotes a balanced, holistic approach that considers the academic, career, and social/emotional development of K-12 students, serves as a base for our program.
