Johnson University is pleased to announce that two concentrations in the School of Social & Behavioral Sciences have been awarded Council for Accreditation of Counseling and Related Education Programs (CACREP) accreditation.
CACREP has accredited both the Clinical Mental Health Counseling concentration and the School Counseling concentration within the Master of Arts in Counseling. Accreditation is retroactive for 18 months, meaning that all 2015 and 2016 graduates of these programs can also claim to have graduated from a CACREP accredited program.
Dr. Sean Ridge, dean of the School of Social & Behavioral Sciences, is pleased with this recognition. "Students can have confidence that both the quality and content of our program meet the highest standards in the field,” he said. “Our graduates will now have a distinct advantage in qualifying for jobs as well as communicating the quality of their training to future employers."
CACREP accreditation recognizes programs that meet or exceed the highest standards for counselor training, and it is a credit to the faculty and administration to reach this milestone. This accreditation is the fulfillment of a multi-year process and highlights the passion and dedication of School of Social & Behavioral Sciences faculty and staff.
Dr. Ridge is thankful for all of the hard work that has gone into this success. "I am deeply grateful for those who have contributed to this achievement. It truly is a blessing to work alongside fellow servants with a heart and passion for our students."
