Meet the new dean
Nicholas Ladany took the helm as dean of the School of Education and Counseling Psychology in summer 2012. At a time when thinking and educating globally matters more than ever, he brings a wealth of international experience.
To give more than 200 presentations on counseling and multiculturalism, with a particular focus on meeting the needs of underrepresented groups, he’s touched down in Ecuador, Kuwait, Norway, Taiwan, Turkey, the United Arab Emirates, and Uruguay, just to name a handful of stops. Author of five books, he has published widely on the supervision of counselors and multicultural competence. His most recent research explores issues surrounding mental health in international schools.
Ladany comes to SCU from Loyola Marymount University, where he oversaw a growing program in counseling.
