The Department of Counseling and Educational Development at UNCG emphasizes culturally responsive counseling services in a variety of settings. One of our core beliefs is to champion diversity and social justice for those who are marginalized and oppressed based on, but not limited to, nationality, sexual orientation, gender identity, race, ethnicity, size, family structure, socioeconomic/class status, religion, language, spirituality physical abilities, health, veteran status, and age. We engage in ongoing dialogue, exchange of ideas, and immersion experiences that promote empathy and compassion toward all individuals. We are committed to educating our students, and future professionals, to engage in behaviors and the practice of counseling that promote respect for diversity and respect for all individuals.
