Traverse Outreach Program

The Traverse Outreach Program (Traverse) is the designated service-learning program for the UNM Counselor Education Program. It provides counseling students with a quality job shadowing experience that complements and enhances traditional classroom learning. Collectively, UNM counseling students contribute hundreds of hours of service to the community every semester.

Two Counseling Education classes have a Traverse component:

  1. COUN 521 Clinical Mental Health Counseling
  2. COUN 545 School Counseling

The Traverse program relies on the commitment and generosity of our community partners who provide enriching field experiences for our students. We are indebted to the many organizations and individuals in Albuquerque and surrounding communities who contribute invaluably to the development of our future counseling professionals.

For information regarding the Traverse placement, please speak with your professor of either of the above two classes.
