CVM welcomes Faith S. Williamson, Ed. D. as Director of the CVM Staff College.

Dr. Williamson is extensively qualified to lead CVM's Staff College efforts. She obtained a B.S. degree in business education from Wilkes College, Wilkes-Barre, PA, and a M.S. degree in counseling psychology from Angelo State University, San Angelo, TX. Prior to joining the Federal Civil Service, Dr. Williamson earned her Ed. D. degree in adult and continuing education from Virginia Polytechnic Insititute and State University.
At DHHS, Dr. Williamson served as coordinator of the Senior Executive Service Candidate Development Program and coordinated and implemented the grand opening of the Program Support Center's Career Counseling Program.
After lengthy planning and development, the CVM Staff College will soon be up and running. The Center continues the development of a competency-based learning management system that will enhance the science base and the introduction of the new training facility to support the infrastructure of the CVM Staff College. In addition, the development of several in-house scientific/reviewer training programs, seminars and workshops are forthcoming to increase the science-based knowledge of the CVM Review Staff.
