Faculty members educate Walden University students by effectively and proficiently using online technology and resources so that knowledge, information, feedback, and critique are imparted to and shared with students in timely, thoughtful, carefully formulated, and well written communications.

Faculty Members are expected to adhere to all Walden University Faculty expectations, which are clearly set forth to the Faculty Member at the start of his/her employment with the University.

The mission of the Master of Science in Clinical Mental Health Counseling Program in the College of Social and Behavioral Sciences is (a) to prepare scholar-practitioners to work as mental health professionals in culturally and socially diverse mental health, organizational, business and community settings; (b) to apply culturally and contextually relevant counseling theory, research and ethical practice to the promotion of mental wellness; and (c) to serve as social change agents with individuals, groups, organizations, and communities.

Clinical Mental Health Counseling faculty are sought to teach and mentor students in the development of their role as mental health counselors. The Clinical Mental Health Counseling program focuses on preparing students academically, professionally, and personally to become skilled mental health counselors. The philosophical foundation of the program is based on: a) the scholar-practitioner model, b) culturally relevant pedagogy and practice, c) academic and experiential learning and d) developmental instruction that includes an emphasis on personal growth. The scholar-practitioner training model is designed to develop students who integrate skills, knowledge, and research into practice.

Walden's M.S. in Clinical Mental Health Counseling program is accredited by the Council for Accreditation of Counseling and Related Educational Programs (CACREP), an independent accrediting agency recognized by the Council for Higher Education Accreditation that accredits counselor preparation master's degree programs. CACREP accreditation attests to the quality and relevancy of our program.
