Faculty and Staff

The faculty of this department are diverse in their professional backgrounds and have extensive experiences in counseling, leadership and special education. The common thread they share is their deep commitment to a world in which children and adults continually seek opportunities for life-long learning, are confident and assured in their abilities to have a positive personal impact on the world, and serve as culturally competent citizens and leaders.

The counseling, leadership and special education faculty bring to the classroom not only their degrees and experience, but also their professional insights, practical approaches and enthusiasm of teaching others. Our faculty provide students with solid understanding of the field, preparing Missouri State graduates for professional excellence.

The counseling, leadership, and special education department is supported by two administrative assistants who provide valuable service to faculty and students. Judy Campbell serves as Administrative Assistant to Counseling, Leadership, and Special Education Department as well as the Educational Administration Program and Student Affairs in Higher Education. Morgan Gonzalez serves as Administrative Assistant to the Counseling and Special Education Department. Application Coordinator, Lisa Monkres, processes all admissions applications for the department.
