Kathleen Maloney, Ph.D., loves watching students’ transformations during this dynamic stage in their lives. She fosters a collaborative learning environment where students can come together to openly discuss and share ideas.

But she also believes that some of the most valuable experiences in a college student’s life take place outside the classroom. That’s why she has been the faculty adviser for Dumbledore’s Army, Poets and Writers, and other RSOs. In her spare time, Maloney delivers meals bi-weekly for Meals on Wheels and is always looking for a challenge—she trained for a half marathon while raising money with Team in Training; she read 100 books in 2018; and is looking for a challenge now.
