P&N Alumna Shirley Collado Named President of Ithaca College

Tuesday, March 7, 2017

Congratulations to P&N alumna Shirley M. Collado, who is the newly named ninth president of Ithaca College.

Dr. Collado is a 1999 Graduate of P&N's Clinical Psychology Program, where the title of her dissertation was "The Perceived Racism Scale for Latina/os: a Multidimensional Assessment of the Experience of Racism among Latina/os."

In a recent video message, Collado is congratulated by a number of colleagues, including P&N Professor Emeritus Susan Roth. Roth reflects on Dr. Collado's time as a doctoral student at Duke. "Her warmth, her passion, her dynamism, her knowledge, her ability to connect were all so compelling," Roth says in the message.

The Ithaca College website praises Collado's career as a clinical psychologist, faculty member, not-for-profit manager, and higher education administrator. "Collado’s accomplishments at Rutgers University–Newark, Middlebury College, Lafayette College, the Posse Foundation, and on many national platforms demonstrate her capacity to lead change in a variety of settings," the website states.
