Marsh, PatriciaAssistant Professor of Psychology
In 2006, Dr. Marsh joined the Department of Psychological Science faculty. In 2005, she taught at Missouri Western State University in St. Joseph, MO and worked with several students on research involving diversity and student learning. For 3.5 years, she worked full-time in the Kansas State University Assessment Office and served as the Assistant Director. During that time she coordinated the activities and progress toward accomplishing a three year follow-up accreditation evaluation on the assessment of student learning from the North Central Association of Colleges and University. The focus-visit report and restructuring of the office's web site greatly contributed to the success of the university's reaccreditation. She developed and taught for several years an undergraduate Biofeedback seminar course.
Dr. Marsh received her M.S. in Psychology (2001), Graduate Certificate in Occupational Health Psychology (2001), and Ph.D. in Social/Personality Psychology (2004) at Kansas State University in Manhattan, KS. As a graduate student, she worked with student clients in the KSU Counseling Center to help them develop stress awareness through the use of Biofeedback; she also performed statistical services for the center.
Dr. Marsh plans to continue her research that explores how students develop multicultural knowledge, awareness and behaviors. In addition, she will expand her research on assessing the impact of learning outcome statements on student learning and attitudes. She looks forward to working with both undergraduate and graduate students on her various research studies, guiding students to conference presentations and co-authoring research publications, and mentoring students throughout their professional development.
