Muskingum University Associate Professor of Psychology Dr. Hallie Baker has been selected as a Fellow of the Association for Gerontology in Higher Education (AGHE). This coveted national honor recognizes outstanding leadership in gerontology and geriatric education. Gerontology is the study of aging and the issues facing the older population.
“Dr. Baker’s academic prowess and enthusiasm for learning and teaching about issues that affect our aging population are highly regarded by her faculty colleagues, peers, and students alike,” said Interim Provost Dr. Rick Nutt. “She is an exceptionally engaging instructor and we are immensely proud of her accomplishments.”
A Social Gerontologist and Licensed Social Worker, Dr. Baker has served on the Muskingum faculty since 2009, teaching in the psychology, sociology, and health science departments. She earned her Doctor of Philosophy, Master of Science, and Bachelor of Arts degrees from Miami University.
Dr. Baker will be recognized for her achievement during the AGHE’s 44th Annual Meeting and Educational Leadership Conference in Atlanta, Georgia, in March 2018. The mission of AGHE is to advance gerontology and geriatrics education in higher education and to provide leadership and support on gerontology topics for educational administrators, faculty, and students in educational institutions across the United States, Canada, and abroad.
