a call for entries for a commissioned art work at | $5000 commission project

Call for Visual Art Proposals
The Department of Counselor Education
University of Wisconsin-Whitewater

In the spring of 2016, the Department of Counselor Education
received the UW System Regents Teaching Award for Programs. This
was a huge honor for our program, faculty, staff and students, and
brought with it a $5000 check. As a department, we have decided
that we would like to commission artwork that represents our
mission and vision as a department and can be visible in our
Counseling Lab. Our counseling lab provides free counseling services
to university students and community members while serving as an
initial training ground for counselors-in-training. The artwork will
serve as a reminder of our values as a department and the work that
is central to our teaching and service. Those values are reflected in
the statements below:
Our mission: To prepare professional counselors who advocate for
social justice and apply their knowledge and skills to develop
effective counseling relationships that serve to improve the human
Our vision: We strive to educate leaders and advocates who will
transform the profession of counseling and the schools and
communities we serve.
