Congratulations to HELI 2013 alum Dr. Colleen O’Neal on her promotion with tenure!
Colleen O’Neal, PhD, was recently promoted to Associate Professor in the Department of Counseling, Higher Education, and Special Education in the College of Education at the University of Maryland, College Park. She problem-solved obstacles along the tenure path and credits her training at HELI and five years of mentorship by Dr. Stephen Thomas for helping her achieving tenure.
Dr. O’Neal is excited to have the academic freedom of tenure to continue her community engaged research with hard-to-reach immigrant and refugee students and teachers, focusing on emotions, stress, achievement, and prevention.
