Welcome to the Department of Counseling, Leadership, and Expressive Arts Blog!

We are honored to be a part of the educational process that develops skilled professionals in the fields of counseling, leadership, and the expressive arts. Graduate programs in our department help students hone the communication, critical thinking, interpersonal and problem-solving skills needed to successfully facilitate change, healing and self-discovery and to lead individuals, groups and larger organizations.

Our intention with this blog is to facilitate prospective student, current student, and alumni connection to the department.  Be assured that in addition to the information presented on this blog, members of our department and the university are available to assist, as needed.  Please call or email whenever you need a more personal touch.

Again, welcome!
