Instilling a strong professional identity in students is an important aspect of our program. We encourage and collaborate with students to present at professional conferences, enter ACA sponsored contents, take on leadership roles, and apply for scholarships. We believe this type of involvement will inspire students to become involved in professional communities and advocate for the role of professional counselors. Below are student highlights we are especially proud of.
