Shannon Jackson appointed director of counseling services

October 13, 2023

Yesterday, Senior Vice President and Dean for Student Affairs Janet Lohmann announced in an email to the student body that Dr. Shannon Jackson has been appointed as Director of Counseling Services. Jackson will start at the College on November 1.

Jackson is currently the associate director of counseling and student development at Central Connecticut State University. In addition to providing clinical resources, he is involved with education; Jackson directed a program for the master’s and doctoral students at Central Connecticut as well. He has also taught psychology, sociology and physical education at both the undergraduate and graduate levels at several colleges and universities.

Jackson has connected with students in other aspects of college campus life, including helping to establish an Active Minds chapter during his time at the University of New Haven and currently serving on the LGBTQ+ advisory committee at Central Connecticut.

Another change going hand in hand with Jackson’s hiring is the implementation of an integrated care model at Bowdoin, bridging the resources of health services with counseling services to best care for student needs. Lohmann noted in her email that Jackson is looking forward to working with this framework in addition to working with the Bowdoin community.

“Dr. Jackson has long wanted to return to work in an integrated care model within a smaller collegiate setting, which makes him an ideal choice for this role at this pivotal time,” Lohmann wrote.
