Clark to become Faculty Fellow for International Students

Crystal Clark, Professor in the English Department, has recently been named the International Student Faculty Fellow. The focus of the work is to serve as liaison with existing programs related to the University of Toledo Community College Consortium for International Students, and Professor Clark has a close relationship with the administrators of that consortium.  As international students in selected countries where we have a third party relationship become a potentially larger part of our student population at Columbus State, this work will be increasingly essential to Columbus State, and beyond involving other faculty, Professor Clark’s work will involve close partnerships with those who have existing expertise in the Division of Student Affairs.

HicksHicks is new counselor

Columbus State’s Counseling Services recently welcomed Michael Hicks, M.S.Ed, L.P.C. as new mental health counselor in the department. Hicks is a Licensed Professional Counselor and has been working in community mental health counseling for more than eight years. He holds a BS in Employee Assistance Counseling from Franklin University and a MS in Education and Allied Professions from the University of Dayton.  

Hicks has worked in a variety of mental health settings, including outpatient counseling for both mental health and addiction issues, vocational rehabilitation, and crisis intervention and stabilization services. He also has experience teaching at the graduate level. “My philosophy is that everyone has the ability to make positive, affirming changes in their lives and reach their full potential by addressing difficult issues openly, overcoming stigma, strengthening their self-esteem, and building a strong and healthy support system,” said Hicks. “I am here to guide students along this path toward positive growth.”
