Faculty Spotlight Erik Hines

Erik Hines

Erik Hines, Assistant Professor in the Counseling and Educational Development department in the UNCG School of Education, discusses some of the frequent stressors faced by college students, as well as his research on the academic success of African American males in grades K-16.

 

1). What led you to pursue a career in counseling?

I knew when I was 19; I wanted to become a school counselor.  At that time, I loved working with K-12 students and helping young adults reach their potential and figure out how to deal with life issues.  As a result, I knew the field of school counseling was profession for me so I mapped out my educational plan to achieve this goal.  During my master’s program, I developed a passion for solving problems around the gaps in academic achievement for African Americans and how parents can help close them.  Consequently, I pursued a degree in counselor education to learn how to solve this problem through research.
