Wendy Paszkiewicz, Psy.D.
Vice President of Academic Affairs

I am a licensed clinical psychologist and my primary area of interest is the integration of socially responsible practice in the education and training of future mental health professionals. I am also interested in child and adolescent well-being and development, advocacy, leadership, and women’s issues. I have been in higher education for 15 years and have served in administrative/faculty positions including Director of Clinical Training and Associate Vice President of Academic Affairs prior to my current role.

My current activities include serving as the President of the National Council of Schools and Programs in Professional Psychology (NCSPP) and a Federal Education Advocacy Regional Coordinator (FEDAC) for the American Psychological Association (APA) Education Government Relations Office. I received the 2011 Education Advocacy Grassroots Distinguished Service Award from the American Psychology Association (APA) Board of Educational Affairs. I am also actively involved in my local community and serve as a member of the Board for the Hoffman United Soccer Club.
