As a program within a Jesuit community, we maintain a primary focus on issues of social justice and the use of Ignatian pedagogy in our pursuit of academic, as well as clinical, excellence. We subscribe to a belief in the inherent worth and dignity of each person; to the need to develop throughout the lifespan a greater sense of self-realization; to a commitment to serving a diverse society; to a commitment of service to others both for the prevention and remediation of life’s problems; and to the pursuit of the highest standards of excellence in the counseling profession.
