Lenore Spence Brantley is Professor of Psychology in the Health and Biomedical Sciences Department at Adventist University. She holds a Doctor of Education degree in Human Development Counseling from Vanderbilt University. She earned a BA in social science and English from Atlantic Union College, and an MA degree in school counseling from Andrews University. During her career she served as a teacher from pre-school to the doctoral level. Her teaching experiences began at Dupont Park Seventh-day Adventist School, continued at Oakwood University, Oakwood Academy, Andrews University, and Adventist University of Health Sciences. She served as chair of the School Counseling Program, a graduate program, at Andrews for 17 years. While at Andrews she developed and implemented Project T.A.B. (Transforming Acting-Out Behaviors), a counseling model which successfully reduced acting out behaviors among elementary students in a variety of settings in the United States and internationally. Her total teaching career has spanned nearly five decades with 35 years full time teaching in higher education. If you were to ask her she will say, “First, I love the opportunity of sharing Jesus Christ in every class I teach. Second, I constantly look for strategies to keep students engaged in and excited about the learning process. Learning should be fun.” At Adventist University she implemented and directed the advising program for the campus and started the Student Success Center, now the Center for Academic Achievement. Presently, Lenore teaches classes in general and developmental psychology. Her main area of interest and expertise is in moral development. Lenore is married to Paul Brantley, has two adult children and one grandson.
