Dr. Tina Anctil has been selected to serve as the new GSE associate dean, effective August 1, 2017.
Anctil began at PSU in 2008. She holds a PhD in rehabilitation psychology from the University of Wisconsin–Madison and is credentialed as a licensed professional counselor (LPC) and a clinical rehabilitation counselor (CRC). She is the current chair of the Counselor Education Department and until this year coordinated the Rehabilitation Counseling Specialization for PSU that is named one of the top rehabilitation programs in the country by US News and World Report.
Last year Anctil and her Counselor Education Department team worked to attain accreditation from the Council on Rehabilitation Education (CORE) and the Council for Accreditation of Counseling and Related Educational Programs (CACREP) for the Clinical Rehabilitation Counseling Program. As a result, PSU is one of the first counselor education programs in the country to be dual-accredited, which makes our graduates qualified for additional job opportunities in both rehabilitation and mental health settings.
In 2013, Governor Kitzhaber appointed Anctil to the Oregon Board of Licensed Professional Counselors and Therapists, where she served for three years.
She is a principal investigator on 11 successful grants, including two consecutive awards from the US Department of Education, for a total of $1.7 million to train diverse vocational rehabilitation counselors. She is active in the National Council on Rehabilitation Education and the National Career Development Association and is on the editorial board of Career Development Quarterly.
Anctil has a total of 23 years in the field of counseling, including teaching school counseling for Washington State University, researching at Oregon Health Sciences University, and working in vocational rehabilitation for the State of Oregon Office of Rehabilitation Services. She maintains her own private practice.
