Keith Jones has taught at Central College since 2006. He is a developmental psychologist at heart and is fasicinated by human behavior in general. He is a Distinguished Alumnus of the West Virginia University Psychology Department.
Convinced that a liberal arts education is a key component to solving problems in society, Jones happily helps students see the connections between their ideas and research, diverse disciplines, class work and the world beyond Central. When away from the classroom, Jones can be found supporting his wife and sons in their many activities, running, smoking copious amounts of meat, attending Central arts and athletic events, and helping coach the Central softball team.
