A Message from Dennis R. Maki, PhD
Departmental Executive Officer
Welcome to the Home page of the Department of Rehabilitation and Counselor Education, which is housed within the College of Education at The University of Iowa. The department prepares students to facilitate human development across the life span, to advocate for clients and students, and to serve local, national, and international communities through the delivery and creation of state-of-the-art counseling services. The department achieves these goals by advancing knowledge, skills, and attitudes appropriate for effective and ethical professional counseling practice and by conducting and disseminating related research.
The Department prepares practitioners and scholars primarily at the graduate level. It also offers basic courses in interviewing and interpersonal skills for students in other professional and graduate programs. In addition, it offers an undergraduate minor.
