Our Commitment

The Department of Counseling, Higher Education, and Speech-Language Pathology embraces diversity across dimensions, including race, ethnicity and national origins, gender and gender identity, sexuality, class, ability, and religion. We are committed to helping and supporting students in and out of the classroom, who have been and are feeling marginalized. Additionally, the Department of Counseling, Higher Education, and Speech-Language Pathology denounces institutional and systemic racism. In accordance with our program’s specific professional organizations, we are committed to making actionable steps toward dismantling these systems and working toward equity and inclusion for students and student groups who experience discrimination and marginalization.
