Eugene "Geno" Pichette
Besides having academic oversight responsibility for the counseling program, Pichette will also be responsible for the instructional oversight of lead instructors and adjunct instructors teaching non-business related courses in the Kellett School, as well as instructional oversight of a portion of the Online Tutorial Instructors.
"I'm really looking forward to working at Lakeland with both the professionals at the college and in the field," Pichette said. "The counseling program overall will take on a social justice emphasis which will see students spending more time in diverse communities and working with a variety of constituents. Lakeland's general studies programming is well established and we will continue to offer outstanding courses in that area."
A veteran of over 20 years of working in rehabilitation, Pichette comes to Lakeland from the state of Washington where he was Chair and Associate Professor with the Department of Human Services and Rehabilitation at Western Washington University. He spent six years as Rehabilitation Counseling Program Director and Assistant Professor in UW-Milwaukee's Department of Educational Psychology, and prior to that worked five years with the Division of Rehabilitation Psychology at the University of North Carolina's School of Medicine.
Pichette earned both his bachelor's degree in rehabilitation and special education and master's in vocational rehabilitation from UW-Stout and his doctorate in rehabilitation psychology from UW-Madison.
He is the author of numerous articles that have appeared in professional counseling and rehabilitation publications, and he has presented at numerous conferences for over two decades.
"Geno will be a tremendous asset to the college," said Allan Mitchler, Vice President of Enrollment Management. "He has some very innovative ideas for the ongoing development of the counseling program, and has a strong interest in social justice issues."
