Mission and Vision Statements
We believe that a well-prepared counselor is involved in and committed to a process of intentional growth that promotes pro-social autonomy, lifelong learning, and ethical behavior. These ideals are fostered within a dynamic and multi-modal learning setting in which diversity, critical thinking, self-in-context, scholarship, praxis, and the creation and integration of knowledge are celebrated.
The Professional Counseling Program in the Department of Counseling, Leadership, Adult Education, and School Psychology (CLAS) in the College of Education at Texas State University will maintain the highest standards of counselor education which will continue to be recognized as such locally, throughout Texas, nationally and internationally. We will provide excellence in academic and clinical preparation for the development of counseling professionals.
