Quality Indicators & Accreditation
The mission of the Human Services department is for students to attain the attitudes, skills, and knowledge to become effective, ethical, and compassionate human services professionals who engage in creative approaches to meet diverse individual, community, and societal needs.
Our Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees are both approved by NAADAC and the Kansas Behavioral Sciences Regulatory Board (BSRB) to provide the coursework required for students to become Licensed Addiction Counselors (LAC) and Licensed Clinical Addiction Counselors (LCAC).
Our Associate’s degree is approved by the Kansas Department of Aging and Disability Services (KDADS) to provide the coursework required for students to become certified Person Centered Case Managers. See our Career Ladder in Addiction Counseling for more information.
The Human Services Advisory Board is made up of practitioners/leaders in the Human Services professional community. We meet with them annually in order to share information with them and to seek advice and get feedback about our program. Our Advisory Board helps us keep our curriculum aligned with the changing needs of the field so that our graduates are employable and ready to meet the demands of the job.
