Counseling conference held on campus

Caldwell, N.J.—April 22, 2013—Forty-one Caldwell University students were inducted into the international honor society of professional counseling on April 17. 

Chi Sigma Iota-Sigma Rho was established in 1985 through the efforts of leaders in the counseling profession who wanted to provide recognition for outstanding achievement and service within the profession. The society was created for counselors-in-training, counselor educators, and professional counselors whose career commitment is to research and service through professional counseling. 

The Caldwell University chapter was established last year with 26 members. 

To earn this recognition, inductees must be current students or graduates of counseling programs, must have completed at least one semester of full-time graduate work in a program, must have earned a grade point average of 3.5 or better on a 4.0 scale and need a recommendation from a faculty member. 

The society’s mission is to promote scholarship, research, professionalism, leadership and excellence in counseling and to recognize high attainment in the pursuit of academic and clinical excellence in the profession. The group has more than 82,000 members, making it one of the largest organizations of professional counselors in the world. 

The fifth annual Caldwell Counseling Conference was held on March 16. More than 60 students, alumni and faculty attended. Each year mental health, school counseling and art therapy students and faculty collaborate to create an event aimed at showcasing current research and major issues facing the counseling profession.
