From staff reports

Three finalists for the director of counseling & psychological services position will visit campus in the coming weeks, beginning Thursday.

Each of the finalists, Richard J. Rini, Thomas Stanger and Tow Yau, will meet with the campus community during an open forum and give a brief presentation before taking questions. Attendees will be asked to complete a short evaluation of the candidate after the session. Resumes will be provided at the forums.

The successful candidate will provide leadership to the department that provides individual, group, and couples counseling as well as outreach and consultation to the Ohio University main campus and its five regional campuses. The center, which is located in Hudson Health Center, is staffed with two part-time psychiatrists and six licensed psychologists and counselors, with searches underway to fill two additional therapist positions.

Rini has 34 years of experience as a psychologist. From 2007 to 2009, he was director of the Florida Atlantic University Counseling Center. From 2001 to 2007, he held the same position at Indiana State University. From 1992 to 2000, he served as a U.S. Air Force military psychologist. He earned his doctorate in clinical psychology from St. John's University in 1984.

Stanger served as the director and department head of counseling and consultation services at Northern Michigan University from 2001 to 2009 and as a staff psychologist at Appalachian State University from 1993 to 2001. He earned his doctorate in counseling psychology from the University of Florida in 1993.

Yau has worked as an assistant director for Community-Based Services at Cornell University's Counseling and Psychological Services since 2007. From 2001 to 2007, he was a senior staff psychologist at the University of Pittsburgh's Counseling Center. He earned his doctorate in counseling psychology from the University of Denver in 1995.
