professor emerita

Marianne R. Woodside, professor emerita in Counselor Education, was inducted into the CEHHS Educators Hall of Honor on March 31, 2016.


She said, “I feel incredibly fortunate to have my academic home in the Department of Educational Psychology and Counseling and in the unit of Counselor Education. Where one works influences the quality of work, the motivation to contribute, and, most important, the help one may provide students. My research, teaching, and service has always involved collaboration both within Counselor Education and the larger department. I want to take this opportunity to thank everyone for their support during my years as a teacher, researcher, and scholar. I am fortunate to have received this award and humbled by the honor. Although it is presented as an individual honor, it reflects the positive contributions we all make as a department and as a program.”


Joel F. Diambra, associate department head and director of graduate studies, nominated her for this honor and said, “Marianne Woodside is an exemplary educator with a long-standing and distinguished record.

She has positively impacted thousands of students through teaching and mentoring over her professional lifetime and impacted hundreds of colleagues through her mentoring and positive spirit and infectious optimism.

She is an outstanding scholar and prolific writer and presenter – it is impossible to determine the vast number of additional lives she’s influenced through her publications and presentations.”

The Educators Hall of Honor was founded in 2002 by late College of Education Dean Rowell. It recognizes the impact of professionals established in the field of education, while supplementing the education of future students. Nominations are made with a minimum contribution of $1,000.
