The Counseling Program emphasizes high standards of professional competence. The Counseling Program continues to remain committed to its stated mission through ongoing accreditations by the Council for Accreditation of Counseling and Related Educational Programs (CACREP), and National Council for Accreditation of Teacher Education (NCATE). The Counseling Program also emphasizes ethical practice and keeps with state and national standards for certification and licensure for practice in educational, mental health and social service environments. Department programs have full approval by the Ohio Counselor, Social Worker, and Marriage and Family Therapists Board (OCSWMFT), Ohio Chemical Dependency Professionals Board (OCDP), and the Ohio Department of Education (ODE). The Department engages in ongoing program development and refinement based on accrediting bodies' and licensure boards’ developments and recommendations, and sensitivity to licensure requirements and legal and ethical issues is a priority.
