1 THE ACADEMIC UNIT SECTION I THE LEARNING ENVIRONMENT: STRUCTURE AND EVALUATION M. For any calendar year, the number of credit hours delivered by noncore faculty must not exceed the number of credit hours delivered by core faculty. In the 2013 calendar year, the number of credit hours delivered by Non-core counselor education faculty did not exceed the number of credit hours delivered by Core counselor education faculty. Core faculty delivered a total of 93 credit hours. Noncore faculty delivered a total of 81 credit hours. See Courses and Credit Hours table. FACULTY AND STAFF W. The academic unit has faculty resources of appropriate quality and sufficiency to achieve its mission and objectives. The academic unit has an identifiable core faculty who meet the following requirements: 1. Number at least three persons whose full-time academic appointments are in counselor education. Counselor education employs six Core Faculty whose full-time appointments are in counselor education: Amy Milsom tenured professor in school counseling, David Scott tenured associate professor in clinical mental health counseling, Kristen Moran tenure track assistant professor in school counseling, Corrine Sackett tenure track assistant professor in clinical mental health counseling, Jerry Neal senior lecturer in clinical mental health counseling, and Diane Stutey lecturer in school counseling. 2. Have earned doctoral degrees in counselor education and supervision, preferably from a CACREP-accredited program, or have been employed as full-time faculty members in a counselor education program for a minimum of one full academic year before July 1, All six of the Core counselor education faculty have earned doctoral degrees in counselor education. Four core faculty earned doctoral degrees from a CACREPaccredited program. See Core Faculty Credentials table. 3. Have relevant preparation and experience in the assigned program area. All of the Core counselor education faculty have relevant counseling preparation and experience as counselors (from 5 to 40 years) and counseling supervisors (from 2 to 35 years). See Core Faculty Credentials table. 1

2 4. Identify with the counseling profession through memberships in professional organizations (i.e., ACA and/or its divisions), as well as appropriate certifications and/or licenses pertinent to the profession. All of the Core counselor education faculty maintain strong identities with the counseling profession through many memberships in professional associations at the state, regional, and national level. All hold current certifications and licensures pertinent to the counseling profession. See Core Faculty Credentials table. 5. Engage in activities of professional organizations, including all of the following: a. development/renewal (e.g., appropriate professional meetings, conventions, workshops, seminars); All Core counselor education faculty have actively participated in the last five years in professional development and renewal outside of the University, attending state and national professional meetings, conferences, and workshops. See Core Faculty Professional Development table. b. research and scholarly activity; and All tenure track and tenured Core counselor education faculty demonstrate a record of continual research and scholarship via peer reviewed journal articles, book chapters, and books, as well as juried and invited conference presentations at the state, regional, and national level. See Core Faculty Scholarship table. c. service and advocacy (e.g., program presentations, workshops, consultations, speeches, direct service). All Core counselor education faculty serve the profession at the state and national level on an ongoing basis by serving as leaders in professional organizations, as journal and book reviewers, as conference proposal reviewers, and as consultants. See Core Faculty Service table. 6. Have the authority to determine program curricula within the structure of the institution s policies and to establish the operational policies and procedures of the program. Clemson University delineates the role of faculty to have the authority to determine program curricula and operational policies and procedures. Counselor Education program faculty make determinations regarding the program curricula, submitting requests through the Curriculum Committee. Recent changes have included the creation of a new course (EDC 817 Crisis Counseling) and modifications to prerequisite requirements. Procedurally, the counselor education program also 2

3 recently moved from having spring and fall admissions options to a fall-only admission process. Specifically, the Clemson University Faculty Manual states that the faculty is charged with creating the curriculum, setting requirements for degrees, determining when requirements have been met, and approving candidates for degrees. The School of Education s Department of Leadership, Counselor Education and Human and Organizational Development (LCH), in which counselor education resides, has a set of bylaws that delineates an elected Curriculum Committee with representation from each program area. Committee responsibilities include review of proposals for course changes, new courses, and other curricular changes. The committee shall evaluate and make recommendations to the faculty on all academic requirements, courses, and curricula, and provide representation for interdisciplinary collegiate or university curriculum-related activities. EVALUATION AA. Program faculty members engage in continuous systematic program evaluation indicating how the mission, objectives, and student learning outcomes are measured and met. The plan includes the following: Clinical mental health counseling (CMH) program faculty engage in continuous, systematic program evaluation as outlined below, both individually to address program-specific issues and in collaboration with school counseling and student affairs program faculty to discuss issues that affect multiple programs. The mission statement and objectives are reviewed every two years. The counselor education faculty (including student affairs) met on September 23, 2011 (see EDC Mission and Objectives work) and most recently October 9, 2013 (see EDC Minutes). 1. A review by program faculty of programs, curricular offerings, and characteristics of program applicants. Each fall the CMH program faculty participate in a review of the program through the completion of a Program Response Report (see PRR 2012 and PRR 2013). In this report, faculty are asked to generate program goals and student learning outcomes based on their review of various types of data including: perceptions of the program (applicants, graduates, site supervisors, and employers) - to identify program strengths and weaknesses graduation rates and employment data - to determine factors that might lead students to be unsuccessful in the program or in finding jobs the NCE - to compare Clemson student outcomes with state and/or national as well as to identify any subscale areas of strength or weakness that would suggest a need to examine curriculum and/or instruction individual and overall student learning - to identify strengths and weaknesses related to specific courses, instructors, instructional approaches, or content areas 3

4 The CMH program faculty, in conjunction with the school counseling program, review curricular offerings twice a year when course schedules are being developed. The CMH program has a set sequence of courses that students are strongly encouraged to follow (full-and part-time options). The Program Coordinator develops course schedules each semester based on which courses are needed to make the sequence work. Elective course enrollment is monitored and decisions are made with program faculty about how frequently to offer various elective courses or whether new courses are needed. Further, feedback from advisory board members is used to determine the relevance of the current curriculum. The clinical mental health counseling program faculty review characteristics of program applicants annually every spring (the program has a February 1 application deadline) when they review program applications, conduct interviews, and make offers of admission into the program. Characteristics discussed frequently include number of applicants as well as applicant ethnicity, age, gender, state of residence, academic backgrounds and performance, and other unique characteristics that applicants identify in their essays. The faculty make efforts to bring in a diverse student group each year. 2. Formal follow-up studies of program graduates to assess graduate perceptions and evaluations of major aspects of the program. Alumni Surveys are conducted by Clemson s Office of Institutional Effectiveness every two years. The first half of the survey contains questions focused on Clemson University and the Graduate School, but program faculty are able to provide input into the program specific questions that come at the end of the survey. Early fall 2013 they sent out surveys to alumni who graduated between December 2010 and May Limited data (N=9) are available at the time we submit this report, but we anticipate more responses will come in later in the semester. This survey was last conducted in 2011 with a response of N=6. Due to low response last time and slow response this year, we followed up by sending requests to our alumni Facebook group. 3. Formal studies of site supervisors and program graduate employers that assess their perceptions and evaluations of major aspects of the program. Employer Surveys are sent out through the School of Education every one to two years, but tracking CMH graduates employers has been challenging, as indicated above. Over the summer we were able to identify 20 employers of students who graduated from and received feedback from 12 (60%). Given decent response rates but low representation of our alumni, we are discussing ways to better track our CMH alumni so that we can more easily identify employers. Feedback from site supervisors is gathered through our Advisory Committee, which is made up mostly of site supervisors (see Advisory Committee Meeting Minutes). 4

5 4. Assessment of student learning and performance on professional identity, professional practice, and program area standards. Assessment of student learning and performance on professional identity is monitored via data we collect through our student activities survey, in which we document CMH Student Memberships in professional organizations as well as CMH Student Professional Involvement via attendance and involvement in professional activities. Professional identity is also monitored informally through reflection papers submitted in various courses, in which students often are asked to reflect on their professional goals as well as strengths and weaknesses. Assessment of student learning and performance on professional practice is monitored via our Professional Fitness Review (PFR) and via both the practicum and internship Site Supervisor Evaluation of Students. The PFR focuses mainly on ethical/professional behaviors while the Site Supervisor Evaluation focuses on both ethical/professional behavior as well as counseling skills. At any time during the semester when faculty or site supervisors express concerns about student performance or professionalism, the remediation process can be put into effect per the EDC Student Review and Retention guidelines. Assessment of student learning and performance on program area standards is delineated in our CMH Comprehensive Assessment Plan. Each program area standard is mapped to one or more specific courses (see Program Area Standards section on p. 9 for details), and we use Livetext to manage and compile the data. Student artifacts are uploaded into LiveText and instructors complete rubric scoring based on the submitted artifact. Reports are run at the end of each semester, allowing faculty to examine both how many students scored at each level on the rubric as well as which students scored at the different levels. Detailed explanations of these assessments are provided in the Program Area Standards. 5. Evidence of the use of findings to inform program modifications. Evidence of the use of findings to inform program modifications is available by reviewing the Program Response Reports (see PRR 2012 and PRR 2013). In these reports, the faculty must indicate what data were reviewed, what they found, and what action was taken. The CMH Program Annual Report (see #6 below) also outlines program modifications and areas for further discussion. 6. Distribution of an official report that documents outcomes of the systematic program evaluation, with descriptions of any program modifications, to students currently in the program, program faculty, institutional administrators, personnel in cooperating agencies (e.g., employers, site supervisors), and the public. 5

6 A CMH Program Annual Report that documents the outcomes of the systematic program evaluation, including descriptions of any program modifications, is made available on our program website. Notification of its availability is sent via to program faculty, institutional administrators, site supervisors, and current students. 6

7 SECTION II PROFESSIONAL IDENTITY KNOWLEDGE G. Common core curricular experiences and demonstrated knowledge in each of the eight common core curricular areas are required of all students in the program. 1. PROFESSIONAL ORIENTATION AND ETHICAL PRACTICE studies that provide an understanding of all of the following aspects of professional functioning: c. counselors roles and responsibilities as members of an interdisciplinary emergency management response team during a local, regional, or national crisis, disaster or other trauma-causing event; This standard is addressed in the EDC 805 Clinical Mental Health Counseling course. d. self-care strategies appropriate to the counselor role; This standard is addressed in the EDC 805 Clinical Mental Health Counseling course. 3.

9 SECTION III PROFESSIONAL PRACTICE Professional practice, which includes practicum and internship, provides for the application of theory and the development of counseling skills under supervision. These experiences will provide opportunities for students to counsel clients who represent the ethnic and demographic diversity of their community. SUPERVISOR QUALIFICATIONS AND SUPPORT E. Supervision contracts for each student are developed to define the roles and responsibilities of the faculty supervisor, site supervisor, and student during practicum and internship. As delineated in the course syllabi (see EDC 836 Practicum and EDC 846 Internship syllabi students enrolled in practicum and internship courses are required to complete a Field Experience Contract at the start of the semester. This contract outlines roles and responsibilities of students, site supervisors, and university supervisors as well as the activities the student will engage in throughout the semester. Each party must initial beside individual items that relate to him/her and sign on the final page. PRACTICUM F. Students must complete supervised practicum experiences that total a minimum of 100 clock hours over a minimum 10-week academic term. Each student s practicum includes all of the following: 2. Weekly interaction that averages one hour per week of individual and/or triadic supervision throughout the practicum by a program faculty member, a student supervisor, or a site supervisor who is working in biweekly consultation with a program faculty member in accordance with the supervision contract. As outlined in the EDC 836 Practicum syllabus, students are required to participate in an average of 1 hour per week of individual/triadic supervision with the university supervisor (either a core or adjunct faculty member). Clemson s clinical mental health counseling program does not have doctoral students so do not use student supervisors. It also does not rely on site supervisors to provide individual/triadic supervision, so the biweekly consultation is not relevant. 9
