Lyn Aubrecht, professor of psychology, joined the Meredith faculty in 1974. With a great appreciation of science in general and psychology in specific, Dr. Aubrecht particularly enjoys introducing students to psychology – and to doing research in psychology – for the first time. His special interests include “intelligence,” what it is, how it evolved, and how it develops and is manifested in people and in animals. He is also interested in the practical applications of psychology. This has led to involvements as diverse as his long term advocacy for appropriate educational opportunities for gifted children and his long term support of research opportunities for undergraduate students – including being a cofounder of the Carolinas Psychology Conference. While at Meredith, Dr. Aubrecht has received the Outstanding Christian Teacher Award, was selected by the American Psychological Association to be a Congressional Science Fellow, and was a Meredith nominee for U.S. National Professor of the Year. Between 2005 and 2009, Dr. Aubrecht served as Head of the Department of Psychology. In 2006, Aubrecht was selected to present Meredith’s Faculty Distinguished Lecture. He is presently the advisor to the Psychology Club.
