The Founding of the Department:
While TWU was designed primarily for undergraduate and later seminary education, at the request of Dr. Ken Davis and the Board of Governors, a task force was established in 1988 to lay out a plan for developing selected graduate programs in the future. It was decided that these new graduate programs were not to be a graduate addition to existing undergraduate disciplinary departments, but were to be designed as unique advancements of the university's mission. Furthermore, to ensure that they did not take away funds raised for undergraduate programs, each program would have to be self-funded and sustained on its own revenues. No progress along these lines was made in the early 1990s until the university was shocked into starting graduate programs when the AUCC began debating a motion to divide all members into three tiers. The third tier was to contain universities and colleges. The president, academic vice-president, and Dr. Davis, who served as Graduate Dean but functioned primarily in ACTS, determined that TWU should not be relegated to the third tier and decided to launch a graduate program as a means of enabling TWU to be recognized among the tier two small and medium sized universities in Canada. (Tier one was reserved for the large research-oriented universities.) It was decided to begin with Counselling Psychology, which was one of four areas recommended by the 1988 task force, because that was the area where it was believed that the university had the most faculty and library resources to move quickly through to completion and accreditation.
