Jungnam Kim (Counselor Education, School Psychology, and Human Services) published the manuscript “School Counseling College-going Culture: Counselors’ Influence on Students’ College-going Decisions” in the Journal of Counseling and Development. She worked alongside colleagues Julia Bryan and Chang Liu at Penn State University to test the conceptual framework of school counseling college-going culture (SCCGC) regarding four critical college-going decisions that high school seniors have to make. This study has provided a comprehensive evidence-supported model that guides school counselors in how to craft a culture in their programs or departments to promote college-going, regardless of the wider culture in their schools. Also, this study has provided implications for counselors, policymakers, and administrators to draw holistically focused conclusions concerning improvement of school counseling programs and generating positive student outcomes.
