Curriculum, Instruction, and Counselor Education

NCSU Belltower with trees and female looking up at itThe Department of Curriculum, Instruction and Counselor Education advances education by preparing educators, counselors and other human service professionals who are innovative, ethical and culturally competent. We accomplish this through rigorous and reflective learning, and through the production and dissemination of high-impact research in local, global, and virtual contexts.

The vision of the Department of Curriculum, Instruction and Counselor Education emerges from two unifying themes. The first is that all efforts of the Department are focused on preparing educators, counselors and other human service professionals who are successful leaders in their field. The second unifying theme is equipping educators, counselors and other human service professionals with the knowledge to be innovative.

We articulate our vision through our commitment to:

  • Developing highly effective teachers in our disciplines through undergraduate and graduate teacher education.
  • Developing highly effective counselors and other human service professionals, educating them to make ethical decisions in their practice.
  • Inspiring culturally competent educators, counselors and other human service professionals.
  • Advancing instructional technologies into teacher, counselor and human service professional preparation.
  • Discovering, disseminating and producing new knowledge in our disciplines.
