Two College of Psychology alumnae appointed to new positions at NSU
Graduates of Clinical Psychology program
NSU President/CEO George L. Hanbury II, Ph.D., has announced that two alumnae from the College of Psychology have been appointed to new positions at the Abraham S. Fischler College of Education.
In July 2018, Kimberly Durham, Psy.D., was appointed as Dean of the College after having served in that position on an interim basis for a year. Prior to that, she served as Chair of the Department of Justice and Human Services in the College of Arts, Humanities, and Social Sciences and Dean of the department's predecessor, the Institute for the Study of Human Service, Health, and Justice.
"Over the span of Kim’s 27-year NSU career as a faculty member, academic administrator and program director, she has had a significant impact on the lives of our students, faculty and staff and has effected positive change within our community," Hanbury said in a memorandum.
In addition, the Department of Justice and Human Services will be moving to the Fischler College of Education to become the School of Criminal Justice and Human Services. The school will be run by Tammy Kushner, Psy.D., who served as Interim Chair of the department. Kushner also works with the Broward Sheriff's Office and is a veteran of the U.S. Air Force.
"The faculty members of Fischler College of Education and the Criminal Justice and Human Services Department have a history of successful collaboration in academic, research and service initiatives," Hanbury said. "Integrating the Criminal Justice and Human Services Department with the Fischler College of Education will create expanded opportunities to serve our community and build upon its established partnerships with the Broward Sheriff’s Office, ChildNet, Federal Bureau of Investigation and other institutions and service providers."
