Kathleen Bieschke Named Interim Dean For Schreyer Honors College

Penn State named Kathleen Bieschke, head of the Department of Education Psychology, Counseling and Special Education, interim dean of the Schreyer Honors College. She will replace Christian Brady when he steps down June 1.

Bieschke earned a Ph.D. in Counseling Psychology from Michigan State, and her research emphasizes the delivery of counseling services to the people of marginalized populations. She came to Penn State in 1991, and as EPSCE department head she supervises resident and world campus instruction for undergraduate and graduate students in the department and the CEDAR Clinic.

She’s also professor-in-charge for the Child Maltreatment and Advocacy Studies minor and chair of the American Psychological Association’s Commission on Accreditation. Bieschke is an active member and on the executive team of the Center for Collegiate Mental Health.

“Kathy is an experienced administrator, engaged teacher and accomplished researcher, with a long history of service to the College of Education and the University,” Penn State Executive Vice President and Provost Nicholas Jones said in a press release. “I have every confidence she will provide outstanding leadership for the honors college as we move forward through this transition.”
