The mission of The J. Graham Brown School Counseling Program is to foster respect, individuality, awareness, and accountability in our students by providing systematic and comprehensive school counseling services. Academic, social, and career skills will be nurtured through direct and indirect services ensuring that all students reach their highest potential based on their unique needs and abilities.
Parents can call the school counselor any time they have a concern for their child to schedule a conference.

SACSCOC notified the university that our accreditation continues but that a one-year probationary period will be imposed immediately with a potential extension of an additional year. It is important to note that this in no way reflects on the quality of our curriculum or our core academic strengths. The commission’s decision to impose probation will not affect your degrees, federal funding (including financial aid available to students), or research grants awarded to faculty. We promised you and your families that we would provide a high-quality educational experience, and that commitment continues. The probation focuses specifically on issues related to the Board of Trustees, including its membership, selection and evaluation of the university president, external influence and Board of Trustees dismissal.
The University of Louisville continues to be accredited. We are a strong institution with a great track record of demonstrating compliance in all areas of review by our accrediting agency. We have much to be proud of, and we will do all that we can to meet the challenges set forth by SACSCOC.
Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have questions. I wish you and your family a wonderful holiday season.
