5 our ALUmNI Psychology Emily Duehr Psychology/English 01 After graduation, Emily completed the Ph.D. program in Industrial-Organizational Psychology at the University of Minnesota in She became a research scientist with PDRI, a premier research and consulting firm in the field of I-O psychology. She joined Javelin HR Solutions in 2011, where she is the director of Assessment Development. Her primary role is to lead the development and validation of online tests and live simulations to assess core competencies in pharmaceutical representatives and their managers. A small school atmosphere facilitated strong relationships with my professors. This benefited my career as I applied to graduate school because my professors were able to write personal, detailed letters of recommendation for my application package. This also benefited my career during graduate school because I was comfortable actively participating in small group discussions, which mirrored the format of many graduate courses. I was able to think critically and express my opinion during discussions, which has carried over to my consulting work as well. Social Work Regina King Social Work 04 After earning a master s in social work, Regina worked at Thresholds, the largest community mental health service provider in Chicago. She served adults with severe and chronic mental health symptoms. Since April 2014, she has been an outpatient therapist at Illinois Masonic Behavioral Health services, providing therapy services to children, adults and families in Chicago. One of the most powerful aspects of Clarke is the available opportunities to develop intellectually as well as professionally. While there, I held paid positions as a social justice intern for two years; the Social Work and Sociology Department intern for four years; I was the president of the Social Work Club; led a Social Scriptures group; and helped lead Antioch retreats. I had leadership and professional development opportunities I would have never had at a larger school.
