Human Services Mission

The Human Services Program prepares students to offer social and clinical interventions that will help individuals and groups achieve their highest level of functioning; exhibit sensitivity to the cultural and ethnic roots of human behavior; and consistently demonstrate a commitment to maintaining good mental health. All Human Services faculty offer personal and academic support to students as they work toward assuming the responsibilities of public services within a framework of a commitment to social justice.

Vision Statement

The Human Services Program strives to increase the number of graduate-level human service providers in Northwest Indiana with particular attention to increasing the representation of minorities within the helping professions.
