Counseling Program Advisory Board

The Counseling Program Advisory Board consists of counseling program faculty, the Department chair, counseling program students and graduates, and area counseling professionals.  The Board meets at least once a year to evaluate the effectiveness of APSU’s Counseling program in training counseling professionals to meet the needs of our diverse society and the communities in which they practice.
