The University of New Mexico Upsilon Nu Mu Chapter of Chi Sigma Iota, has announced the selection of Andrea Faeth, as one of 10 newly selected Leadership Fellows for 2013-14.

Faeth, a counselor education student in the Individual, Family, & Community Education Department at the UNM College of Education, currently holds the position of chapter president and has coordinated several conferences for the Upsilon Nu Mu Chapter, along with their volunteer program.

Each year, Chi Sigma Iota, the international honor society of professional counseling, selects 10 active members to participate in its Leadership Fellow and Intern program. Those selected provided evidence of leadership potential within their chapter.

The 10 leadership fellows receive recognition, specialized leadership training and financial support to attend CSI activities held in conjunction with the annual meeting of the American Counseling Association. Leadership Fellow nominees must be members of CSI and have the support of their chapter including endorsement by the Chapter Faculty Advisor, and a commitment for a matching fund award from their chapter.

The Upsilon Nu Mu Chapter, under the leadership of UNM Assistant Professor Kristopher Goodrich, chapter faculty advisor, was chartered in April 2001. They have initiated 173 members to date and remain an active chapter in Chi Sigma Iota.
