My name is Andre Sumiel.  I am a graduate student in Counselor Education and Student Affairs at Kutztown University. I am conducting research on the racial/ethnic experiences of underrepresented Masters-level students in CACREP-accredited counseling programs. Deborah Duenyas, Ph.D. and Jill Krahwinkel, Ph.D. are co-researchers, and this study has been approved by the Kutztown University Institutional Review Board (log# IRB03052021). 

I believe this research will benefit the counselor education community by adding to the understanding of underrepresented student experiences in CACREP-accredited counselor education programs. In addition, I believe this study may have implications for counselor education curriculum and programming to support an inclusive learning environment. 

Each participant in this study must meet the following conditions: (a) identify as a Master’s-level graduate student enrolled in a CACREP-accredited counseling program in the United States, and (b) identify as racially/ethnically underrepresented in their counseling program. 

If you meet these requirements and would like to participate in this study, please complete the attached consent form and participant data sheet. Once completed, return the forms to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.. I will contact you to set up our initial interview. The estimated length of each interview is 45-60 minutes. If you have any questions, you can also contact me by phone at 302-397-7302. 

Thank you for your time and consideration in assisting me with this important research.
