Goals 2000-2001

The Faculty and Staff of the Counseling Department will work to:

Upon completion of the review, modify course syllabi to reflect the integrated learning experiences and incorporate a general portfolio plan that includes assignments from several core courses.  As a result of the review process, develop consistent standards for our practicum courses to ensure uniformity of student experiences across instructors.
