Stephanie A. Wilsey, a professor of psychology at Carlow University, has been named dean of its College of Leadership and Social Change, effective July 1, school officials announced Monday.

Wilsey joined Carlow as a full-time faculty member in 2007. She has been interim dean of the college since August.

Wilsey collaborated with colleagues to launch Carlow’s interdisciplinary programs in Crisis & Trauma, Child Development, and Behavioral Neuroscience. She also helped to launch Carlow’s accelerated Master of Science in Professional Counseling program.

The model pioneered in the accelerated professional counseling program has been expanded in the College of Leadership & Social Change to include accelerated pathways to the master of science in fraud and forensics, MBA, and student affairs programs.

“We believe we have an outstanding new dean who will play a vital role in leading the College of Leadership and Social Change through dynamic innovation in a rapidly changing time in higher education,” said Suzanne K. Mellon, president of Carlow University.

Wilsey, 41, of Moon Township, received a doctorate from the University of Pittsburgh in applied developmental psychology, with a quantitative research methodology minor. She received an undergraduate degree in pre-professional psychology from Geneva College. She was the recipient of Carlow’s Sisters of Mercy Award for Excellence in Advising in 2011.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
