About Us

The Department of Counseling and Psychological Services is an urban-based, multidisciplinary department. Our mission is to engage local and international partners and allies in order to achieve two priorities:

  • Conduct research, promote scholarship, and advocate for effective social policy, prevention, intervention, and treatment processes and outcomes for diverse populations.
  • Prepare exceptional professionals who strengthen and promote thriving in the diverse individuals and communities that they serve.

Based on our commitment to diversity, advocacy and the belief that change is possible, our mission is to prepare competent professionals in counseling and psychological services. We want to contribute to the body of knowledge that sustains these professions and provide service to the profession and the community. Join us for one of our monthly information sessions to learn more about our department and programs.
