Congratulations to Cassandra Hinger, Ph.D., assistant professor of Counseling, Administration, Supervision & Adult Learning, on being selected to join the 2024 Society of Psychology Counseling Leadership Collaborative. This unique training experience for students and early career professionals (ECPs) accepts a cohort of twelve diverse fellows annually to participate in leadership training, complete projects, and present their project results at the annual American Psychology Association convention.
Dr. Hinger will kick off her participation in the program with a leadership training session in Santa Fe New Mexico from January 18 to January 21 which is held concurrently with the SCP Executive Board Midyear Meeting. As a fellow, she will be assigned a SCP leader to serve as a mentor and help guide her in her project development. The project will be designed to contribute to SCP’s values and help advance the organization’s strategic plan. Projects will be presented at the 2024 APA convention in Seattle Washington this August.
Dr. Hinger joined Levin College in August of 2023. She is a recent graduate of the APA-accredited Counseling Psychology program at Georgia State University and completed her internship at the APA-accredited Counseling Center at Georgia State. Her dissertation research focused on racial allyship from the perspective of people of Color and she has engaged in leadership on this topic as part of two presidential initiatives in the Society of Counseling Psychology (Division 17 of the American Psychological Association).
As a professor, she is passionate about multicultural training and student development and wellbeing, teaching practicum I and II, intelligence testing, and multicultural counseling. She serves as an Editorial Board member for the journal The Counseling Psychologist.
