New ADEP Leadership beginning May 1, 2012

After serving two years as Director of CLU’s Adult Degree Evening Program (ADEP), Dr. Gina LaMonica has decided to leave CLU.  Dr. Lisa Buono has agreed to serve as the Interim Director of ADEP, beginning May 1, 2012.

Dr. Buono joined the faculty of CLU in 2004. She teaches a variety of courses in both the Pupil Personnel Services and College Student Personnel specializations in the Department of Counseling and Guidance. Through a collaborative effort, Dr. Buono also taught distance learning courses to counseling candidates in the Federated States of Micronesia.

Additionally, Dr. Buono serves as the Coordinator of the College Student Personnel specialization and as the Interim Field Work Coordinator where she assists upwards of 40 candidates each semester with their field work needs. Prior to CLU, Dr. Buono taught at UCLA in the MFA Producer’s Program.

We will begin a national search this fall for the Director of ADEP. Dr. Buono will serve in the Interim role through the next academic year.  Let’s all give Br. Buono a warm welcome.

If you have any questions about ADEP prior to May 1, please feel free to contact Leanne Neilson (; 493-3145) or contact Rocio Hernandez, Associate Director of ADEP (; or 493-3169).
