At Alliant International University, where he is Provost and Vice President for Academic Affairs, Dr. Russ Newman brings two worlds of experience to the table: He’s credentialed as both a clinical psychologist and a lawyer. Besides having served him well for 14 years as executive director for professional practice for the American Psychological Association (APA), that dual knowledge has given Newman, 59, a keen perspective about students’ needs at Alliant, which offers degrees in both psychology and the law.
“We want to make sure that our psychology students have some exposure to what goes on in the law school, because those kinds of skills really intermingle when you get into the real world where everything is mixed," Newman said.
