Faculty

George Fox PsyD professors are mentors who provide guidance throughout the entire program. Faculty members get to know you and your interests and talents. Most importantly, they are available to help you develop professionally, personally and spiritually. The atmosphere in the department office says it all: a sense of camaraderie, dedication and excitement pervades in a place where faculty and students interact closely, as colleagues and as friends.
