The first students enrolled in this program in the Fall, 2010. Over the past years, we’ve focused on making this program the best in the region and an excellent learning opportunity for students. The program is accredited by the Council for Accreditation of Counseling and Related Educational Programs through 2022. We have obtained funding from the Rehabilitation Services Administration to provide competitive scholarships to eligible students in order to support students during their graduate education. Finally, in collaboration with our partners in the community such as the Texas Workforce Commission (TWC), the New Mexico Division of Vocational Rehabilitation, Volar Center for Independent Living, and the Opportunity Center for the Homeless we continue to offer a range of field-based learning opportunities that will allow students to apply the knowledge they acquire in the classroom.
