Jeffrey Lating, Ph.D.
- Academic Focus Psychology
“The basic tenet of service for others at a Jesuit university is very consistent with the applied foundations of clinical psychology,” says, Dr. Lating, who has been teaching psychology at Loyola since 1994 and became a full-time faculty member in 2000. Dr. Lating received his bachelor's degree from Swarthmore College and a Ph.D. in Clinical Psychology from the University of Georgia in addition to completing a post-doc fellowship at Johns Hopkins Hospital. Today he brings his knowledge of and experience with the field of medicine to his courses in health psychology and students in Loyola's Pre-Health Programs. "Psychology at Loyola is unique because students are exposed to faculty who often teach at both the undergraduate and graduate levels," says Dr. Lating. "Our students learn the science of behavior and mental processes, develop critical thinking, and graduate from our programs prepared to serve others in a dynamic and changing world. The engagement of the students and the ability to get know them during their time at Loyola—and after—is also very special."

In the new age of instant access to information, I consider an extremely important role I have as an instructor is to inspire students to become interested in the subject... by sharing my enthusiasm for the topic and infusing practical, applied information throughout the semester.
