Mission Statement

The Department of Human Development and Psychological Counseling (HPC) is a diverse and collaborative community whose primary mission is to train skilled professionals using a theory-to-practice model in Student Affairs, School Counseling, Clinical Mental Health Counseling, and Marriage and Family Therapy.  We have rigorous programs that adhere to best practice standards with a focus on social justice and inclusion, reflexive practice, critical thinking, and engagement. We accomplish this through an emphasis on holistic and person centered approaches. (Adopted by HPC Department Faculty on 1-30-2019.)
