Dr. Sarah Bracey has been chosen to serve as program coordinator of the psychology program at Welch College, according to Welch Provost Matthew McAffee.
“I am pleased to announce Dr. Sarah Bracey as program coordinator for the psychology program,” McAffee said. “Dr. Bracey has been serving as interim program coordinator for the spring 2019 term, and has distinguished herself as the best candidate to fill this position. I have been impressed by her genuine care for our students and commitment to this institution. It’s an honor to welcome her to the faculty.” Bracey succeeds Mr. Michael Oliver, who completed his tenure as psychology program coordinator in December, 2018.
Bracey received a B.A. in Philosophy and a B.A. in Psychology from Ball State University in 2003. She completed an M.S. in Professional Counseling from Lipscomb University in 2010 and most recently defended her dissertation for the CACREP-accredited Ph.D. in Leadership-Counselor Education and Supervision from the University of the Cumberlands.
She has served as an adjunct faculty member at Welch College over the past five years. She has already been successful in recruiting students to the psychology program. Dr. Bracey has also served as an on-campus counselor, which she will continue alongside her program coordinator responsibilities.
“Sarah Bracey brings a wonderful combination to her new position at Welch,” Welch President Matt Pinson said. “She’s a godly mentor of students, a classroom teacher who’s well-loved by her students, and a scholar who is sensitive to how the Christian worldview transforms her subject matter. She will be a tremendous blessing to Welch.”
Bracey is married to Matthew Steven Bracey, Vice Provost for Academic Administration and lives in the Nashville area. For more information on Welch College, visit welch.edu or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
