Barrett has been with the psychology program for seven years and serves as the coordinator for the doctoral program in psychology (Psy.D.), which was launched in 2013.
“As our programs in psychology continue to grow, we want to retain those faculty members who have made significant contributions,” said President Helen J. Streubert.
“Tom is the consummate professional and CSE is proud to have him on the faculty.”
Barrett brings to his new position a commitment to psychology in which he has taught seven courses in the Master of Arts in Counseling Psychology and Master of Arts in Forensic Psychology and Counseling Programs.
