Counseling and Student Personnel
At Minnesota State Mankato's nationally accredited (CACREP) and internationally registered (IRCEP) Counseling and Student Personnel Department, we believe that face-to-face, personal interactions are the heart and soul of the counseling and mental health professions. Our dedicated, nationally known faculty members work one-on-one with students in the classroom, in research and in real-world applications.
The CSP department believes that diverse perspectives enrich the learning experience. To this end, it is committed to recruiting, enrolling, and supporting students, faculty, and staff who identify with underrepresented groups by engaging in advocacy to remove the systemic barriers that are impediments to their success. People who identify with underrepresented groups are warmly invited to join the CSP community.
We also know that technology plays an increasingly important role in facilitating communication, which is why we have equipped our state-of-the-art counseling skills lab with innovative and constantly evolving systems to enhance student learning. Our applied programs translate directly to the day-to-day work of professionals and practitioners to elevate and enhance the services they provide.
