USU Professor Participates in Inaugural Professor Lecture Series

Utah State University professor of psychology Gretchen Peacock presented her Inaugural Professor Lecture Jan. 29 in a presentation titled “School Psychology: Professional Issues in the Field and the Evolution of a Career.”
 
Peacock grew up in Maine and received her bachelor’s from the College of William and Mary and her master’s and doctorate, both in school psychology, from the University of South Carolina. She completed a pre-doctoral internship at the Munroe-Meyer Rehabilitation Institute at the University of Nebraska Medical Center in Omaha, Neb.  
 
Peacock started her faculty position at USU in July 1995 immediately following the completion of her internship. Her research interests have been in the area of parent-child relationships and parenting interventions for child behavior problems. 
 
Peacock is married to Tony Peacock, an associate professor in the department of political science. They have three children.
 
The Inaugural Professor Lecture Series is coordinated by the provost’s office and is hosted by President Stan Albrecht and First Lady Joyce Albrecht. Faculty members in the series have been promoted to full professor within the last academic year and present a lecture that highlights their research, creative activity or teaching at the university.
