William J. Casile, Ph.D., NCC, ACS & LPC is an Associate Professor in the Counselor Education Program at Duquesne University, where he has worked for 30 years. In addition to his faculty responsibilities, Bill has held several administrative positions within the School of Education. He is the former Director of the doctoral program in Counselor Education and he served as the original Director of the School of Education’s Leadership Institute. Bill is currently the Director of the Duquesne University Center for Collaborative Supervision and Evaluation (DUCCSE) where he focuses his current consultation and research on the processes associated with organizational and professional collaboration. In particular, he is interested in exploring the application of collaborative methods in the supervision and evaluation of professional performance and the outcome these processes produce.
Bill’s background, as a father, coach and teacher, counselor, educator and supervisor influences his current interest in developmental and constructivist approaches to learning and change. He continues to be curious about the use of collaborative group activities to promote healthy human development; the influence these theoretical models have on teaching, counseling and supervision methods; and the ways that counselor educators and supervisors can encourage aspiring professionals to operate in ways that are consistent with the fundamental principles of these approaches.
Bill is an active member in the American Counselors Association (ACA) as a regular presenter at their international conference and as a member of the Association for Specialists in Group Counseling (ASGW), the Association of Counselor Educators and Supervisors (ACES), and the Sports Counseling Interest Network (SCIN). He is most proud of awards he has received for his collaborative partnerships with community agencies, for example, the Duquesne University President’s Award for Community Service, The West Oxfordshire Learning Partnership’s Investors in Education Award, The Bayer Corporation’s Quality Excellence Award, and the ASSET Inc’s Making Science Work Award.
