The love of my life of for over 30 years is Heidi. We have been blest with three children: Sonja who is married and has two daughters, Wes who is a doctoral student at Carnegie Mellon University, and Linnea who is a college student at St. John's College in Annapolis.

I am humbled by the task of leading the College of Counseling as the Associate Dean. I am overwhelmed with the tremendous faculty, staff and students God has given the College of Counseling. As a faculty team we count it a joy to journey along side our students and watch God work as He transforms students into the people He has made them to be to help transform others by His grace.

One of our family's most memorable adventures was living in Kuwait for the 08-09 school year where we worked for the Kuwait Center for Autism. I served as the staff psychologist, Heidi taught the one English speaking class, and Linnea attended the British School of Kuwait. We love the people of Kuwait and the Center's great work with individuals with autism.

Harvey and Heidi PayneMy wife and I have been involved with various ministries including teaching Sunday school classes, women ministries, youth ministry, marriage classes, and presenting at various seminars and retreats. We currently attend the Columbia Christian Fellowship in downtown Columbia.
For most of my "professional life" I have been a clinical child and consulting psychologist in private practice in Washington County, Maryland and Franklin County, Pennsylvania. My specialization has been in the evaluation and treatment of children for attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder, autism, learning disabilities, social-emotional and behavioral disorders, developmental delays, and medical-related issues (e.g., pain management, adjustment to chronic illness or acquired injury). I provided agency and staff consultation, program development and staff training for various local agencies, residential facilities and schools. I have also served internationally as a consultant for the Kuwait Center for Autism, the Jeddah Autism Center in Saudi Arabia, and the Oomit Corporation’s development of a center, Green Pastures, for disabled children in Astana, Kazakhstan.

July 01, 2016

NOTE:  Pending Budget Approval for 2016-2017


The position of Assessment Coordinator includes primary commitment to implement and supervise the assessment plan of the College of Education under the leadership of the Dean of the College of Education.


Assessment Coordinator for the College of Education (COE) provides on-going, faculty-based evaluation for improving the quality of all the COE Programs and ensuring that outcomes achieved are consistent with the mission and goals of COE and CIU.  Although assessment, as well as the accreditation process, is the responsibility of virtually every member of the University community, the function of the Assessment Coordinator is to be involved closely in the assessment process, primarily by managing—and eventually directing—the College of Education assessment, accreditation and licensure activities. These duties will include such activities as organizing the process with timelines, conducting constituent surveys, compiling information, providing an information database, collecting and entering data, completing files, analyzing statistics, providing feedback and information to the unit and programs for evaluative decision making, developing rubrics and charts, writing reports, testing, making modifications to assessments and the assessment process, attending meetings, keeping minutes and records, working with advisory council and stakeholders, keeping abreast of changes to standards, meeting with faculty and candidates, creating and revising course schedules and forms, working as a team with faculty to organize periodic events for prospective students and candidates and performing other related duties as required. Ultimately, the information gathered will be used to strengthen the College of Education programs by examining and revising: (1) the alignment of instruction and curriculum with CIU, professional, state and institutional standards; (2) the efficacy of courses, field experiences, and programs and (3) candidates’ attainment of dispositions, content knowledge and demonstration of teaching and leading that leads to student learning.

The development of students is at the heart of the purpose of the College of Education.  All members of the education team are called upon to embody and to implement CIU’s purpose and mission, To Know Him and To Make Him Known, as well as the educational philosophy of the College of Education and its conceptual framework. The College of Education focuses on equipping Christian educators to think, teach and lead biblically in educational settings throughout the world. This is accomplished by facilitating student growth in biblical knowledge, spiritual maturity, ministry orientation and the professional skills necessary for service in a variety of cultural contexts.
