Dr. Peggy Crowe
Director, Counseling & Testing Center
Office: Potter Hall 409
I moved to Kentucky from Wisconsin in February, 1996, to pursue my Master of Arts degree in Student Affairs. I also worked full time in the Department of Housing & Residence Life. After completing my Master’s degree in 1998, I served in various other roles at WKU, including an Area Coordinator, M.A.S.T.E.R. Plan Coordinator, UC175 instructor, and Assistant Director for HRL. I left WKU in 2002 to pursue my Ph.D. in Higher Education Administration at Bowling Green State University, Ohio.
I returned to WKU in 2004 and worked with Dr. Gene Tice and Howard Bailey, coordinating development and fundraising efforts within the division of Student Affairs. In turn, this was the focus of my dissertation research, “Development & Fundraising Efforts within Divisions of Student Affairs at 4-year Public Universities”.
After serving as Asst. Dir. for HRL (2006-2013), I was promoted to Associate Director for HRL. I became the Interim Director for the CTC in 2013.
I have fully enjoyed serving WKU in these two positions the past year and a half. Both roles have allowed me the opportunity to continue to work with faculty, staff, and students and have put all of my educational preparation and experiences into practice! I have learned so much from the CTC team and they have certainly challenged and helped to make me a better higher education professional. I enjoy spending time with my family (husband Michael and 5-year old son Michael, III) – my most important “job.”
