We envision the University of Minnesota Crookston as a recognized global leader in delivering collaborative, developmental, and holistic undergraduate career counseling.. We will be a model for services that encourages students to be engaged with a diversity of ideas, people, and disciplines and that support students through exploration, reflection, and engaged citizenship.
Through a campus model of collaboration and shared responsibility, we partner with students in their pursuit of academic, career, and life success.
We create mutual partnerships within the University community – including students, faculty, and administrators – to help students become successful and the University reach its goals.
We believe that all members of the University community share responsibility for creating a culture of excellence and student success.
We hold that respecting, supporting, and nurturing the unique developmental needs and academic aspirations of each student are critical to the educational mission of the University.
We believe that services need to be holistic and targeted in ways that challenge and support students’ development throughout their undergraduate experience.
We welcome and respect differences in people, ideas, and disciplines; strive to be inclusive in all of our practices; and provide access and support for traditionally underrepresented student populations.
We encourage engagement in campus, local, and global communities.
We are committed to honest and empathetic interactions with our students and colleagues while providing the most accurate information available.
We believe that our professional growth is critical to providing exemplary service and contributing to the fields of academic advising and career counseling.
