The Department of Counselor Education and Counseling Psychology, as well as Marquette University as a whole, is committed to social justice. These commitments are reflected in the Marquette University Statement on Human Dignity and Diversity, which reads, "As a Catholic, Jesuit university, Marquette recognizes and cherishes the dignity of each individual regardless of age, culture, faith, ethnicity, race, gender, sexual orientation, language, disability or social class."
Our department emphasizes the importance of diversity and multicultural influences on development in all of our programs, including our course work and research, as well as throughout our practicum and internship training. The department expects that all faculty and students will engage in respectful explorations of issues regarding diversity and multiculturalism as we develop more fully our commitment to social justice. In addition, faculty and students are all expected to explore their own attitudes, knowledge and behaviors with regard to various forms of discrimination so that the quality of our research, teaching and practice improves.
