Leaders continue to work tirelessly for the profession of school counseling and ultimately for the welfare of students.
The most recent visible effort is the formation of a new group following the first two White House Convening on School Counseling and College Access. The group is called the National Consortium for School Counseling and Postsecondary Success (NCSCPS).
The eight Consortium members include, among others, Trish Hatch, co-author of ASCA National Model, Patricia J. Martin, formerly of the National Office for School Counselor Advocacy, Mandy Savitz-Romer, Harvard, and Laura Owen, San Diego State.
“The Consortium…launched with a grant from the Kresge Foundation aims to provide a leading voice for excellence…in college and career services.” The Consortium’s focus is to continue the work of the Reach Higher Initiative and “increase fair and accessible pathways to higher education for all students.” www.ncscps.org
