For additional context about the Indiana Counseling Association, Campus Representative responsibilities, and Campus Representative commitment information, please continue reading.

    The Indiana Counseling Association (ICA) is dedicated to working alongside counseling graduate students and counseling programs in Indiana to address concerns facing counselors-in-training and newly licensed professionals.

    A shared objective between Campus Representatives and ICA Board members is to advocate for the needs/concerns of graduate students more effectively; communicate opportunities for continuing education, networking, and advocacy efforts; and gain additional knowledge into the changing landscape of counseling at a State and National level.
