Chris Mazurek was so inspired by his high school psychology teacher that he declared psych as a major when beginning his undergraduate studies at Illinois. After graduation, he attended UNC-G for doctoral work, conducting research on cognitions about consensual sex and sexual aggression. Desiring to be the kind of inspirational teacher that motivated him, Chris focused on gaining teaching experience, working at small liberal arts schools in High Point, North Carolina and Birmingham, Alabama before settling down in Columbia, Missouri, where he taught for 13 years before joining the Curry school in the Fall of 2017. Chris enjoys hiking with his family, board games, Star Wars, and Cubs baseball.
