Who We Are
The American College Counseling Association is made up of diverse mental health professionals from the fields of counseling, psychology, and social work. Our common theme is working within higher education settings.
ACCA membership includes professionals and student members who work largely in college counseling settings. There are a growing number of community college counseling professionals who comprise the second largest group within ACCA. Members hold primarily a master’s or doctoral degree with the largest group being master’s level professionals. Counselor educators and Supervisors are also part of ACCA membership.
Congratulations to our colleagues and members at North Carolina State in the Counseling Center on their recent Emmy Award in the Public Affairs category. Their video, #StopTheStigma, produced in conjunction with Durham-based StoryDriven, was recognized by the National Academy of TelevisionArts & Sciences in January. The video features students talking about suicide and began as an outreach effort, by two NCSU counseling center Social Workers. NCSU is led by former ACCA President Monica Z. Osburn.
