in the Center for Personal Development


Pearce Hall
(910) 630-7150

Darlene Hopkins
Director, Center for Personal Development
(910) 630-7150

Dr. Hopkins insists that everyone call her by her first name. "Please call me '‘Darlene'," she says. "It is important to me to have a face-to- face, adult-to-adult, informal relationship with students. Counseling is about collaboration and empowerment, not guidance and advice giving. My experience has taught me that people solve their own problems and rise above their obstacles when someone believes in their ability to do so." Dr. Hopkins studied Educational and Counseling Psychology in the Graduate School of Indiana University. She graduated from Indiana University with honors and has earned several credentials since, including her Ph.D. in Christian counseling from Atlantic Coast Seminary. She is nationally certified as a psychologist and as a counselor. She is licensed by the North Carolina Board of Licensed Professional Counselors and is a Licensed Clinical Addictions Specialist. She has more than 25 years of experience in counseling and has served Methodist University as the director of Counseling and Psychological Services since 1993.
