Dr. Cara Cochran Appointed Dean of the School of Counseling

With a long history as an administrator in higher education, including serving as the Assistant then Associate Dean of the School of Counseling at Richmont for 6 years and as Dean of the School of Counseling under a two-year appointment, Dr. Josh Rice has appointed Dr. Cara Cochran as the Dean of the School of Counseling.

“Working with the faculty and staff of Richmont’s School of Counseling for the last two years has been an incredibly rewarding professional experience. Richmont’s faculty and staff are a community. In the role of dean, I have the opportunity to see each member of this community excel in doing the work for which they are so exceptionally gifted. I am grateful, every day, to have the opportunity to serve alongside the Richmont community,” Cochran remarks.

“It has been a joy to work closely with Dr. Cochran over the last two years in building and leading the faculty. During this season of growth, Dr. Cochran has demonstrated constant poise and administrative acumen that has benefitted our faculty, students, and staff. I am happy that she has accepted this permanent role, particularly as we have major strategic plan initiatives in the school of counseling over the next two years,” says Rice.
Congratulations, Dr. Cochran!
