HPU Welcomes New Biology Department Chair


HIGH POINT, N.C., Aug. 13, 2013 – Dr. Angela Bauer was recently hired as the new biology department chair at High Point University.

In her role, Bauer will head the department and teach courses in endocrinology, women’s health and a first year seminar on the biology of sex and gender development.

“I am thrilled to become a part of a campus that places students’ academic success as its utmost priority,” says Bauer. “When I interviewed at HPU, I was thoroughly impressed with the thought and passion that faculty and administrators devote to providing HPU students with a high impact educational experience. I can’t wait to learn from – and contribute to – this wonderful learning environment.”

Bauer has Bachelor of Arts degrees in Psychology and Neuroscience from Lawrence University in Wisconsin, a Ph.D. in Neuroscience from Northwestern University and she conducted postdoctoral studies at Harvard Medical School.

Before joining the HPU family, Bauer worked at the University of Wisconsin-Green Bay and was recently awarded the University of Wisconsin System’s Diversity Award for inclusive classroom practices that closed the achievement gap between majority and underrepresented students in introductory science courses.

“I intend to share my love of learning – and passion for life in general – with HPU students,” says Bauer. “I will provide them with engaging classroom and laboratory experiences that will not only help to open their eyes to the beauty and wonder that exists in the natural world, but will also help to foster success in their professional fields.”

In addition to her chair, teaching and research duties, Bauer will take over as editor of the Journal Syllabus, a journal devoted to the scholarship of teaching and learning, this fall.
