The Graduate School of Leadership and Change (GSLC) just concluded a national search and is honored to share that Dr. Fayth Parks will be joining as a Core Faculty member of GSLC officially in July 2022. Dr. Parks has been at Georgia Southern University for over 20 years, most recently as Professor in the Counselor Education Program in the Department of Leadership, Technology, and Human Development. Her areas of deep interdisciplinary interest are spirituality and servant leadership, and the value of love as an approach to leading change.
As a counseling psychologist by training and profession, she is drawn to helping individuals and communities address trauma and healing that draws from a cultural lens, particularly African traditions. In terms of her methods of inquiry, Dr. Parks finds power in storytelling, narrative inquiry, and arts-based and ethnographic work. She is currently taking courses herself in documentary film-making and multimedia production.
