As Campus Dean, Martyn will be responsible for the administrative and operational performance of the Chicago campus. The Chicago School of Professional Psychology is one of the leading nonprofit institutions devoted exclusively to psychology and related behavioral health sciences.

It’s exciting to be a part of such a forward-thinking team.” Dr. Margie Martyn
