In this episode Garth and guest host Jane Halonen (University of West Florida) interview Michael Stoloff from James Madison University in Harrisonsburg, VA. Michael currently serves as the Associate Dean of the Graduate School at JMU, but leadership is a thread throughout his career (including associate dean of the college, department chair, director of the undergraduate psychology program, master’s degree program, and more). A first-generation college student, he found his stride eventually with psychology and a love for experimentation with animals and humans. His research lab experiences as a graduate student were the models he attempted to replicate with his undergraduate research methods students — with success. Garth, Jane, and Michael end on discussing their joint service on the APA Guidelines 3.0 revision, its implications for departments and curriculum restructuring, and the nature of service at the national level — a topic they are all familiar with.
