Mission and Distinctives

Mission Statement

Huntington University's Clinical Mental Health Counseling program provides Christ-centered counselor training, equipping counselors to engage diverse cultural contexts through the cultivation of clinical skills, critical thinking, and academic excellence.

Our program seeks to develop the personhood of the counselor through a dynamic process of engaging leadership and students in a variety of contexts, one's own faith and relationship with Christ, and nurturing an emerging counselor identity through personal development and relationships with others.
