graduate students and will demonstrate potential for a strong publication record and external funding. The

counseling, school counseling) and the ability to contribute to academic offerings for the certificate in the

master’s and doctoral students. The successful candidate will show evidence of cultural competence
through collaborating with communities of the Global Majority by way of research, teaching, and/or
