TRANSFORMING LIVES GLOBALLY THROUGH CAREER AND COLLEGE COUNSELING. Through events like the IC3 Conference, IC3 Regional Forums, and IC3 Live, we aim to sensitize leaders of educational institutions around the world to the need and criticality of a robust career and college counseling department: for high school leaders to invest in the setup and maintenance of this office in their schools, and for university leaders to take a counseling-oriented approach to recruitment and outreach. Responsible counseling is about helping students find answers to three important questions: 1. What to study, 2. Where to study, and 3. How to make it happen. Counseling should not only manage the process of applying but more importantly provide guidance for students in making these important decisions.
