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.

Martyn has worked with The Chicago School before. As Vice President of Instructional Systems and Dean of Online-Blended Programs, she is credited with developing the school’s online campus. She was Assistant Dean of Academic Administration at DePaul University. For five years, she taught full-time as an assistant professor at Baldwin-Wallace College in Ohio.

The Chicago School’s mission and values, says Dr. Martyn (right), “truly resonate with me – the focus on innovation, commitment to diversity, and service to community are all priorities in my personal and professional life. It’s exciting to be a part of such a forward-thinking team.” Dr. Margie Martyn

Approximately 4,300 students attend The Chicago School of Professional Psychology – online and at campuses in Chicago, southern California, and Washington, D.C.
