    • Increased availability of graduate assistantships
    • Development of new electives and other learning experiences that reflect faculty expertise and help to address emerging practice areas
    • Increased faculty and staff support of students in Level I and Level II fieldwork, including increased numbers of fieldwork sites in Colorado and nationally
