Lori Lange

Associate Professor, Psychology

 

Lori Lange is an Associate Professor in the Department of Psychology, where she also serves as the Director of the Master of Arts in General Psychology program. Her path to UNF started in the Midwest, where she earned a BS at the University of South Dakota and MS and PhD in experimental psychology at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee. Gathering her cheesehead, she traveled west for a postdoctoral fellowship at the Stanford School of Medicine and a project directorship at the Veterans Affairs Palo Alto Health Care System.

 

Proud to be an Osprey, Dr. Lange has mentored numerous graduate and undergraduate students in research and was a 2013 recipient of the UNF Outstanding Undergraduate Teaching Award. Community-based activities in her courses have involved working with HabiJax, Wounded Warriors, New Town Success Zone, Florida Coastal Cleanup, St. Johns River Cleanup, and Delete Blood Cancer DKMS. She conducts research in the area of health psychology, including collaborations with the UNF Military and Veteran Resource Center, UNF College of Health, Veterans Affairs, and Mayo Clinic-Jacksonville.

 

As a Community Scholar, Dr. Lange developed a Practicum in Applied Psychology Guide and worked in collaboration with Dr. Jody Nicholson to design and implement a practicum preparation workshop. She views the Practicum in Applied Psychology Guide neither as a final document nor endpoint, but rather as a beginning to be built upon toward a goal of facilitating quality and sustainable practicum experiences for psychology students at UNF. As the practicum guide evolves, her hopes are that it will serve as an important resource to support the development and sustainment of community partnerships and to promote quality opportunities that are reciprocally beneficial for the student and community partner.
