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.

Marian Green and Lisa Monkres serve as Administrative Assistants for the Counseling, Leadership and Special Education Department.
