- Dr. Julie Morrison grew up in Phoenix and attended Xavier College Prep. While there she
worked at Teen Lifeline, a teen crisis hotline, and first became interested in the field of
psychology. She went to Texas Christian University and majored in Psychology with a
minor in Communication. After working with several faculty in their research labs, Dr.
Morrison decided to pursue a career in teaching and research rather than one as a clinical
(counseling) psychologist. She was accepted into the PhD program at Stanford
University, and spent the next five years earning her doctorate doing research on the
effects of animation on learning. Dr. Morrison worked in the User Interface Research
group at the Palo Alto Research Center for several years and, among other projects,
studied how people searched for and found information online (before Google). Dr.
Morrison then began her teaching career at Bryant University in Rhode Island. After four
years there, she decided to move home. She accepted a position at Glendale, where she is
able to spend more time working with students both in and out of the classroom. Dr.
Morrison teaches PSY101 Introduction to Psychology and PSY290 Research Methods.
Dr. Morrison is married to her college sweetheart and they have two wonderful boys.
