Dean’s Message Fall, 2017

Michael HolleyUpdates

Welcome Back!!! I hope everyone had a good summer and that you are ready to start back to school in our Fall, 2017, Semester. I would like to emphasize that our faculty truly understand that education is challenging and rigorous. Please know that if you need assistance, contact your instructor, Program Chair or my office. There are a number of resources ranging from the Student Success Center, tutoring, Advisors, and faculty who can assist you. There are also several new certificates, events, and activities for our students this fall.

Last year we implemented a new degree program in Applied Family Science, and new certificates in Compliance, Trauma Informed Approach, Case Management, Emotional Intelligence, Community Engagement, and Crime Scene Investigation. We have also added certificates in Emergency Management and Family Science, and a Legal Studies Completion Degree.

Understanding the needs of our students in preparing for their careers, promotion or changing fields of employment, we have developed certificates in specific areas of study that offer focused information and courses for students.  Many of our certificates are designed to be earned as you attend courses within your major (stacked as you go…).

Here are a few of the new certificates as well as information on those in development:

Michael HolleyStudent Spotlight

Dover, DE — The NBCC Foundation, an affiliate of the National Board for Certified Counselors, Inc. (NBCC), recently awarded one of the 2015 NBCC Foundation Global Career Development Facilitator (GCDF) scholarships to Kendall Wilson, of Dover, Delaware. The goal of the GCDF scholarship program is to increase the number of available counselors providing quality career guidance and facilitation. In doing so, the GCDF scholarship program plays an important role in the Foundation’s mission to leverage the power of counseling by strategically focusing resources for positive change. Wilson will receive $5,000 to support her counseling education and recognize her commitment to providing career counseling and guidance.

A graduate of Wesley College, in Dover, Wilson is currently working toward her master’s degree in clinical mental health counseling at Wilmington University, in Dover. Upon completing her degree, Wilson intends to work with college students, assisting them in identifying fulfilling career choices. She would also like to work with diverse, underrepresented populations in either mental health or career counseling services. The GCDF scholarship will allow Wilson to complete her education and attend further conferences to assist in establishing her professional presence in the community, connect with local resources, and identify areas for advocacy for underrepresented populations.” (www.nbccf.org).
