American University

Students Say

AU attracts a crowd that “tends to be very ideologically driven.” “Liberals run the show,” most here agree, although they add that “Plenty of students don’t fit this mold, and I’ve never seen anyone rejected for what they believe.” The campus “is very friendly to those with alternative lifestyles (GLBT, vegetarian, green-living, etc.),” but students with more socially conservative inclinations note that “while AU boasts about the many religious groups on campus, there is still a general antipathy toward piety.” The perception that some departments outshine others is reflected in the way students perceive each other; one says, “You have the political studies know-it-alls, the international studies student who thinks he is going to save the world, the artsy film/communication students, and the rest [who] are unhappy students who couldn’t get into George Washington or Georgetown.”

Students Say

“The greatest strength of AU is the activity level both politically and in the community,” students tell us. “Whether it was signs in windows, talk in the class or in the hallways, t-shirts, or canvassing in Metro-accessible Virginia, students on both sides took [the 2014 midterm election] religiously.” As one student explains, “Let’s put it this way: A politician who comes to campus is likely to draw about 90 percent of the student population [and] an AU basketball game, about 9 [percent].” Students get involved in the community through “campus outreach by student-run organizations,” which many see as “the school’s greatest asset.” The typical undergrad is “incredibly engaged and active…Students seek internships in every line of work, becoming actively involved in a field of interest before graduation.” When it’s time to relax, “Washington, D.C. offers limitless opportunities to explore.” Many “enjoy partying and hanging out off-campus and on campus (even though AU is a ‘dry campus’),” but there are also “a lot of people who don’t drink and have a very good time just using what D.C. has to offer: museums, restaurants, parks, cinemas, theaters, and shops.” As one student sums it up: “The city is the school’s greatest resource. You will never run out of things to do in Washington.”

Counseling Education Program Mission Statement

The Counselor Education Program at Eastern Washington University is committed to the selection, training, supervision, and professional success of counseling students, in keeping with the high standards established by the Council for the Accreditation of Counseling and Related Educational Programs (CACREP). As a regional teaching university, EWU has a proud history of providing education to a high percentage of first generation college students, often from under-represented and lower socioeconomic communities, a tradition which the Counselor Education program maintains. Thus, counselor training occurs in a learning community that is intentionally focused on both skills development and personal growth of the counselor-in-training. In this way, Counselor Education fulfills its purpose of preparing competent and caring professional counselors to meet the needs of diverse urban and rural communities.

Classes and experiences are organized to provide thorough instruction in the skills and knowledge generally recognized by the counseling profession to be effective with a K-12 population. Candidates not only focus on the following in the graduate classroom, but also for the K-12 population he or she will serve: academic, career, and personal/social development.

Graduates of the program meet the requirements to become an Educational Staff Associate (ESA), the credential held by School Counselors.

Candidates of the program will have education and experiences shaped by the ASCA (American School Counseling Association) National Model. They also have opportunity to be mentored by professionals in the community while they complete an internship. This relationship helps guide the candidate in construction of a professional portfolio, which is a product of the knowledge and skills gained through the graduate experience. Themes include leadership, advocacy, collaboration, and systemic change, which are incorporated into the components of the ASCA model. The components are foundation, management, accountability, and delivery. Instruction includes all of these aspects, along with the CACREP core competencies, providing graduates with a solid entry point for a rewarding career.
