Areas of Expertise

Dr. Kuntz joined the UMM faculty over 10 years ago bringing expertise as an applied psychologist. She is interested in how to improve human relations within the physical, biological, social occupational and technological environments. Dr. Kuntz believes that classroom opportunities that include service learning/community engagement (SL/CE) are crucial preparation for majors. These activities prepare campus and distance students for both graduate school and immediate employment as problem solving skills, critical thinking, and collaboration are vital to be successful in either realm. Dr. Kuntz received the Donald Harward Award from Maine Campus Compact in recognition of her SL/CE course work. She facilitates workshops for other faculty utilizing SL/CE in distance classes and recently had a chapter published with a colleague in the Service-Learning and Civic Engagement: A Sourcebook, by SAGE publication. Dr. Kuntz is the advisor for the 100% Society which hosts an LGBTA youth state-wide Rainbow Ball Weekend. She is very honored that graduating senior classes have named her the recipient of the Frederick Reynolds Faculty Award several times as well as naming her their Class Marshall during graduation.

“I’ve always been interested in what we can do to improve people’s lives. I’m interested in how to improve human relations within our physical, biological, social, occupational and technological environments. Unlike many people’s image of a psychologist, I am not trained to ‘psychoanalyze’. Instead, my quest is to apply psychological theory to real world problems for groups and individuals, and this is exactly what my students get to experience with their research projects for various community agencies.” Lois-Ann Kuntz
