Educational Environment
We are part of a small university that provides individualized attention in a student-centered, close-knit environment. Faculty and students develop close working relationships that foster student growth. Through a process of individual feedback and goal-setting, students acquire the applied skills and self-awareness to become successful professionals. We do this within an educational context that promotes respect and appreciation for individual, family, and cultural diversity.

Financial Support
Each full-time student is granted an assistantship covering 50% of tuition costs in exchange for working 7.5 hours per week at the University. Through grants and contracts obtained by our Lea R. Powell Institute for Children and Families, as well as competitive assistantships earmarked for our students, additional funding may be available.
