Graduate Students

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.

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!
