CHICAGO, Aug. 10, 2016 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- President Michele Nealon-Woods, Psy.D. of The Chicago School of Professional Psychology is pleased to announce the selection of Dr. Tiffany Masson as the new campus dean of its Chicago Campus, the University's oldest campus. Since 1979, The Chicago School has been one of the leading nonprofit institutions devoted exclusively to psychology, and related behavioral health sciences.
As Campus Dean, Dr. Masson is responsible for the oversight and strategic direction of the campus.
"I am excited to continue to work with Dr. Masson, who has served in several leadership roles including Interim Chicago Campus Dean for more than a year. Having joined the University in 2007, Dr. Masson brings valuable knowledge and insight to The Chicago School community," said Dr. Nealon-Woods. "She is an asset and I have the utmost admiration and respect, not only for her competencies and skills, but for her deep passion and commitment to our institution, and our global community."
Since joining The Chicago School in 2007, Dr. Masson has held several leadership positions including Department Chair of International Psychology, Dean of Online Programs, and Vice President of E-Learning and Global Innovation. As a global innovator, Dr. Masson co-developed the Global HOPE (Healing Opportunities through Purposeful Engagement) Training Initiative in Rwanda that includes a comprehensive curriculum designed to aid teachers to effectively recognize, assess and intervene with traumatized children as the country continues to deal with the effects of the 1994 Rwandan Genocide. Her work in Rwanda and ability to develop government and private partnerships has proved successful in the expansion of the Global HOPE Training Initiative to Zambia and South Africa.
"I am honored to have been asked to assume the role of campus dean," said Dr. Masson. "I believe strongly in The Chicago School's mission and am excited to be able to continue to work with leadership, faculty and staff to further that mission, as we continue to offer students an excellent education in psychology, and behavioral health that will serve them well as they take their place as leaders and innovators in our society."
