SDSU White House Convening Organizations Issue Press Release

CACREP has been actively involved since last summer with the White House initiatives to improve college access and career and college readiness for all students. First Lady Michelle Obama has also thrown her support behind the important role that School Counselors have in moving these initiatives forward.  As a result, there have been meetings at both Harvard and San Diego State University focusing on school counselor preparation (pre-service and in service), a White House Call to Action summit, and numerous conference calls with representatives from the Department of Education and the White House to keep the momentum moving forward. The organizations from the San Diego State University White House Convening have issued a press release on efforts toward effective delivery of counseling and advisement for postsecondary preparation.
