Biography

Karl Bailey is a Professor of Psychology in the Behavioral Sciences Department at Andrews University, and the director of the undergraduate Behavioral Neuroscience Program. A cognitive psychologist by training, Dr. Bailey's work with his research students on attention and self-control among Seventh-day Adventist young adults led him to the study of the relationship between religious belief and motivation. For the past four years, Dr. Bailey and his students have been working on a large project to develop and refine instruments to study the internalization of Sabbath keeping among Seventh-day Adventists, and to better understand the positive relationship between Sabbath keeping and well-being. Dr. Bailey and his students (along with Herb Helm) also use eye tracking to study watercolor paintings and language comprehension in the Andrews University Cognitive Psychology Laboratory.

Dr. Bailey has taught courses in cognitive psychology, learning and behavior, psychology and the brain, research methods, cognitive science and faith, and the statistical programming language R. He also is one of the leaders of the department’s annual trip to Chicago to attend the Midwestern Psychological Association Annual Meeting.

Dr. Bailey is married to Rosemary (Bauer) Bailey, and is the father of Lilianora, and Annalise. When not teaching or researching, Dr. Bailey programs computers and plays the guitar, ukulele, autoharp, and bass (but not at the same time).

Rosemary Bailey is the Assistant to the Dean for Strategic Planning in the College of Arts and Sciences. She has a Masters in Curriculum and Instruction and 10 years of teaching experience in elementary and middle school.

Rhonda Root is a new addition to the CAS Dean’s office. She is serving as an Assistant Dean for Curriculum and Assessment. Having taught in both Art and Architecture (a Professional Program) she comes with experience in Curriculum development, mapping and assessment of courses.
