MSCC Faculty of the Year Award

One Faculty of the Year Award is granted per site, each year, in recognition of the vital contributions faculty and staff make to the MS Clinical Counseling program. The Faculty of the Year Award recipient demonstrates excellence in both teaching and service. Candidates are inspiring, challenging, and demonstrates a commitment to their students and counselor education. They are also approachable and willing to help students on an individual basis, and demonstrates effective teaching practices. Such a faculty member makes important contributions to the field of counseling, and shares those gifts with peers and students through publication, presentations, and class instruction. Finally, the ideal candidate willingly and effectively devotes time and energy in useful service to the university, the profession, and the state.
