Upper Iowa University - Alexandria, La

(12)

The Upper Iowa Center in Alexandria, LA, opened in 2006, relocating from New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina. The center is located in the Learning Center for Rapides Parish and is part of a consortium of 11 colleges and universities to provide for the educational goals and career development of the citizens of Central Louisiana. The center offers seven majors and three minors on site. Additionally, it can offer courses that when blended with our distance learning programs can lead to a degree in 12 other majors. There are six eight-week terms offered each academic year. All classes are offered at the LCRP in the evenings to minimize disruption to working adult learners. Upper Iowa has articulation agreements with Baton Rouge, Bossier Parish, Delgado, Nunez, River Parishes and LSU-E to assist transfer students. We have also partnered with the Fraternal Order of Police and the Louisiana State Troopers Association.

Mission: "Upper Iowa University provides student-centered undergraduate and graduate educational programs through flexible, multiple delivery systems in an environment in which diversity is respected, encouraged and nurtured."

Attend our Virtual Spring Graduate Fair Wednesday, April 14th at 7:30 p.m. CST and learn about the Master of Science in Counseling.
The MSC degree prepares professional counselors for a unique profession which emphasizes prevention of emotional and mental disorders, early intervention when problems are identified, and empowerment of clients. Professional counselors have adopted a developmental wellness model of helping people which acknowledges that mental health exists on a continuum and the counselor’s role is to assist the client in moving as far as possible toward positive mental health. Professional counselors view human emotional and mental problems as normal to existence and developmental in nature.
