Dr. Tony Brown, professor of psychology, will deliver a Last Lecture at 9 p.m., March 25, 2019, at Rice Auditorium. In his lecture, “Things I Learned While Eating Popcorn at the Movies,” Brown shares his belief that learning also happens outside of a classroom setting.
“I’m really honored to be asked to present in the Last Lecture series, especially because I know there are so many of my Baker colleagues who, I think, have more interesting stories to tell than I do,” Brown said. “I hope students realize what a wonderful compliment they are giving professors when they invite us into their lives outside of class. It’s like asking a performer for an encore.”
Brown began teaching psychology at Baker in 1990, with a short break in which he served as assistant dean at Neosho County Community College in Ottawa, Kansas. He serves as the chair of Baker’s Quest liberal studies program. He earned his bachelor of arts at Wabash College in Crawfordsville, Indiana, and his master and doctoral degrees from Vanderbilt University, in Nashville, Tennessee. He also served as a representative for the 10th District of Kansas from 2009 to 2011 and is a member of the Baldwin City Council.
The Last Lecture is free and open to the public as part of a series hosted by Baker’s Student Activities Council.
Those who are unable to attend can watch the lecture via LiveStream.
