Sibyl Camille West joined the IUP faculty in fall 2009. She attended Truman State University for her undergraduate work and University of Arizona for her master’s in School Counseling. She graduated from Ohio State University with her PhD in Counselor Education. Her dissertation focused on counselor education programs at historically Black colleges and universities and CACREP accreditation. Additional research and scholarly interests include remediation plans and feedback for counselors-in-training, gate-keeping, multicultural counseling issues, school counselor supervision, and school counseling in urban settings.
West was a school counselor at Carson Middle School in Tucson, Arizona. She is a member of the American Counseling Association, Association of Counselor Education and Supervision, the American School Counseling Association, and the Association of Multicultural Counseling and Development. She has presented at the ACA national conference, ACES national conference, and the Transforming School Counseling national conference.

When not working, West spends her free time relaxing with her husband, Chris; playing with her 14-year-old Chihuahua mix, Shelby; cheering on the Ohio State Buckeyes and the Arizona Wildcats; reading books on her Nook; and playing Scrabble, UNO, darts, and Words-with-Friends.
