Clinical Mental Health Counseling student, N'Dea Coleman, has been awarded a $15,000 Addictions Counseling Fellowship from the National Board for Certified Counselors Foundation. Congratulations, N'Dea!
Ninety fellows were selected from over 450 applicants to represent three cohorts of fellows: master’s-level mental health counseling, doctoral-level mental health counseling, and master's-level addictions counseling.
As an NBCC Minority Fellowship Program - Addcitions Counseling (MFP-AC) Fellow, Coleman will receive funding and training to support her education and facilitate her addictions counseling service to underserved populations.
The NBCC MFP-AC is made possible by a grant awarded to the NBCC Foundation in collaboration with the Association for Addiction Professionals (NAADAC) by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA). The NBCC Foundation administers the MFP-AC, including training and collaboration activities, such as webinars, that are open to all board certified counselors.
The goals of the program are to strengthen the infrastructure that engages diverse individuals in counseling and increase the number of professional counselors providing effective, culturally competent services to underserved and never-served populations. Each fellow receives funds to support their education as well as training, mentorship, and professional development services.

As we close out the 2020-2021 school year, I hope that you will take some time to rest and relax. This year, we have all spent a great deal of time looking at our screens. It is time to "unplug" for a little while - both students and faculty.
If you are seeking information about the Program, a lot of what you may be interested in can be found on our website. If you have questions that are not addressed on the site, please be patient during the break between semesters. Some faculty teach during the summer, and some do not. Most faculty use the summer to focus on their research and writing.
If a faculty member is not teaching during the summer, I would ask that you allow them to have some space and time to focus on their work and wellness this summer (and I hope that you will do the same). We will be back at "full-speed" again when school starts in August.
The first summer session (and dual session) start on May 25, 2021.
Congratulations to Dr. Tasha Hicks Becton, who has been selected to serve on the American Counseling Association's first-ever Antiracism Commission.
The goal of the commission is to "discuss, evaluate, and propose actions that will guide ACA in breaking down systemic and institutional barriers that exist in the association and counseling profession." Dr. Becton will also be briefed on the action of ACA staff.
Dr. Becton's service on the commission begins immediately and will run through the end of June, 2022.
