Wisconsin School Counselor Association, Inc.
The mission of WSCA is to advance the profession of school counseling in preschool through post-secondary in order to maximize the academic performance, career planning, and personal/social growth of every student.
Graduate students are busy with coursework and practicum/internship. However, it’s never too early to start employing data and conducting research to further the field of school counseling.
WSCA seeks graduate students to present their scholarly work at the WSCA Conference! Any original work- class projects, curriculum, research, compilations, are all examples of great poster presentation topics! Click here for more information about how EASY it is to submit a poster proposal. You can receive volunteering credit for presenting a poster for one hour. It's also a great step in finding a school counseling position! Questions? Contact the Post-Secondary VPs or the Graduate Student representative.
Graduate Student Research Examples
Collaborating with Faculty
One way to get started with research is to partner with a faculty member or school counselor who is conducting research. One idea is to explore how WI school counselors understand and implement the Wisconsin Comprehensive School Counseling Model and/or the ASCA National Model. You can usually find research interests on the professor’s webpage, and many instructors welcome help from graduate students! Ways in which you may be involved, depending on the study, are data collection, reviewing the literature, data entry, surveying participants, and writing up the results or presenting at a conference. This looks great on your resume when you start to look for jobs!
