The department also recognizes and appreciates the developmental tasks of an individual, which can be achieved through the utilization of various guidance services. The Guidance team believes in the uniqueness, capabilities and potentials of individuals to achieve a balance in their total well-being.

Principles
  1. An individual is a unique social being.
  2. The development of an individual is sequential, predictive, and a life-long process.
  3. The pedagogy of education is a learning continuum in knowing oneself, doing good for others, and making a difference.
  4. Guidance and education are highly interrelated constructs. In the realm of life and in the counseling profession, every individual submits himself to the power of the Supreme Being.
