Rolla E. Lewis, Ed.D, NCC, is a professor in educational psychology and school counseling coordinator. His research and scholarly interests are informed by an eco-relational model. He has passion for developing school counseling education programs and practices, using structured narratives in counseling and supervision, and creating university-community collaborations that place school counselors-in-training in service to high-need youth and families.

When at Portland State University (PSU), he was recognized twice with the Civic Engagement Award for creating programs that build upon local knowledge and community service. Dr. Lewis has published numerous chapters and articles, and has developed web-based venues for professional school counselors to share what works best in their learning communities to construct programs that help all students live up to their greatest potential. He was awarded the Oregon Counseling Association's Leona Tyler Award for outstanding contributions to professional counseling.
