Dr. William Hathaway is the dean of the School of Psychology & Counseling. He describes Regent as having provided the ideal setting for him to bring together several different strands of his life. At the completion of his Doctorate in Clinical Psychology at Bowling Green State University, while he did not know what shape his final career would take, he felt led by God to pursue multidisciplinary studies in psychology, philosophy and religion.

Not wanting a merely academic faith, Hathaway sought out various opportunities for being involved in ministry during these years, finding service as a youth minister, Christian educator and a founding leader in a college ministry. His clinical training was fleshed out during seven years as an Air Force psychologist. During his time in Germany, he supervised counseling interns for the University of Maryland Master's Program in Professional Counseling, as well as taught practicum and other counseling courses.

Hathaway left active duty to complete a post-doctoral fellowship in clinical child psychology with Russell Barkley at the University of Massachusetts Medical Center ADHD clinic, the leading research clinic for ADHD. Following his fellowship, Hathaway joined Regent in its new Christian psychology program. Since then, Hathaway has enjoyed the responsibility and privilege of training future psychologists and counselors, calling Regent the ideal community of Christian scholars in which he can continue to pursue his passion for lifelong learning and Christian service.
