TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (WTHI) - Press release from Indiana State University:
Indiana State University’s (ISU) counseling programs are celebrating their 45th anniversary this academic year.
ISU’s programs are among the oldest counselor education programs in the United States.
The first program, a PhD in what is now called Counselor Education, opened in 1968.
Its first graduate was Joe Wittmer, professor emeritus at the University of Florida. Dr. Wittmer is a widely acknowledged expert on the Amish people and their culture, as well as a national leader in the school counseling profession.
Over the years, many other talented graduates of the counseling programs have gone on to become leaders in school counseling, marriage and family counseling, clinical mental health counseling, and counseling psychology.
The counseling programs, which are currently housed in the newly refurbished University Hall, offer fully accredited master’s degrees in school and clinical mental health counseling. The programs also support the community serving counseling clinic in University Hall, the Norma & William Grossjean Clinic.
