diversity which includes factors such as culture, ethnicity, nationality, age, gender, sexual orientation, mental and physical characteristics, education,
family values, religious and spiritual values, socioeconomic status and unique characteristics of individuals, couples, families, ethnic groups, and

variety of cultural backgrounds in order to promote ethical, culturally responsive, and advanced multiculturally competent counselor educators,
supervisors, and researchers.Research skills will be strengthened through the evaluation and annotation of primary sources on such topics as ethics
and cultural competence, among other topics.
