Dr. Lauren Doninger, LPC, LADC - Following a clinical career in mental health and addiction services, Dr. Doninger came to Gateway in 2001 to coordinate the Drug and Alcohol Recovery Counselor program. In 2007 she became the coordinator of Liberal Arts & Sciences (LAS). In her tenure as the coordinator of LAS, Dr. Doninger grew the program such that Gateway awarded 49% of all AA degrees in LAS in the state of Connecticut (including public and private institutions combined). Dr. Doninger worked closely with colleagues at senior institutions, to make transfer seamless. In collaboration with other community college faculty and staff, Dr. Doninger launched the Guaranteed Admission Program from Gateway to UCONN in 2008. Under her tenure as LAS coordinator, transfer to SCSU became particularly accessible. SCSU agreed to take the LAS degree as completion of the General Education requirement at Southern. Dr. Doninger teaches psychology and addiction courses and is committed to helping students develop and grow through higher education. In addition to classroom work, Dr. Doninger works closely with students on career exploration and advising.
