CRYSTAL QUILLEN

Crystal Quillen, executive board member of the Center for the Enrichment of Learning and Teaching, is an Assistant Professor and Program Coordinator of Psychology in the History and Social Sciences Department. She earned her B.S. in Psychobiology from Lebanon Valley College (PA), and earned her MA and Ph.D. in Experimental Health Psychology from Kent State University (OH).

During her graduate career, Dr. Quillen’s research focus was on predictors of PTSD and exploring the impact of PTSD on physical health. As Dr. Quillen spent more time in the classroom, she targeted her focus on stress and poor health decisions of college students. She is now interested in how stress impacts learning and how to create an inclusive learning environment.

When not in the classroom, Dr. Quillen spends time with her husband, children (Jacob and Riley), two dogs, and two cats! She enjoys cooking and reading post-apocalyptic novels.
