Call for Visual Art Proposals

The Department of Counselor Education

University of Wisconsin-Whitewater

In the spring of 2016, the Department of Counselor Education

received the UW System Regents Teaching Award for Programs. This

was a huge honor for our program, faculty, staff and students, and

brought with it a $5000 check. As a department, we have decided

that we would like to commission artwork that represents our

mission and vision as a department and can be visible in our

Counseling Lab. Our counseling lab provides free counseling services

to university students and community members while serving as an

initial training ground for counselors-in-training. The artwork will

serve as a reminder of our values as a department and the work that

is central to our teaching and service. Those values are reflected in

the statements below:

Our mission: To prepare professional counselors who advocate for

social justice and apply their knowledge and skills to develop

effective counseling relationships that serve to improve the human


Our vision: We strive to educate leaders and advocates who will

transform the profession of counseling and the schools and

communities we serve.
