The mission of the Purdue University Fort Wayne school counseling program is to prepare professional school counselors who are educational leaders and self-reflective practitioners. They will utilize a systemic orientation to serve the needs of teachers, students, parents, and administrators. School counselors will provide advocacy for all children and accept responsibility for improving educational practices through an active program of research and evaluation. School counselors will collaborate with schools, homes, and community agencies in order to support the academic achievement, career success, and personal social development of all students regardless of ethnicity, gender or economic status.
