Using his extensive experience, knowledge and passion, Dr. Stephen Sharp is guiding our College's future success as its academic dean.

Steve's tenure at University of Phoenix began in 2005, serving as associate faculty, clinical director and campus college chair at the Utah Campus, and then as associate dean and program dean for the College of Social Sciences. He played a key role in revitalizing the College's Human Services and Clinical Mental Health Counseling programs.

His formal education includes a Bachelor of Science in Psychology from Utah State University, and a Master of Science and a Doctorate in Human Services with a Professional Counseling Specialization from Capella University. Steve further honed his expertise with specialized credentials and professional licenses, and accrued more than 10 years of clinical experience in the private and community sectors.
