Cassie Eno, Ph. D.
Adjunct ProfessorPhone: 641-585-8131Fax:
Dr. Cassie Eno grew up in central Iowa and attended Simpson College. After graduating with her BA in psychology from Simpson, she moved to Tuscaloosa, AL to pursue her graduate work at the University of Alabama, where she completed her MA and PhD in social psychology. Dr. Eno joined the psychology department at Waldorf in 2010 and is currently the department chair.
As a social psychologist, Dr. Eno is interested in examining how our personal attributes and beliefs interact with the characteristics our environment to influence behavior. She teaches a variety of courses at Waldorf including: Social Psychology, Psychology of Gender, Health Psychology, Introductory Statistics and Research Methods, Advanced Research Methods, Senior Capstone in Psychology, and Critical Inquiry. Dr. Eno’s specific research interests include understanding how gender roles influence individual behavior (e.g., Are men or women more likely to conform to the behavior of others?), how gender roles influence others’ perceptions of behavior (e.g., How do perceptions of women who engage in masculine and feminine behavior differ?), and how gender is related to status differences between men and women (e.g., Why are men more likely to be in CEOs than women?).
Throughout my education, I respected and admired professors whose classes seemed less like requisites and more like invitations to think and learn. I have always viewed teaching as a privilege and as my chance to provide students with a similar invitation. Through my teaching, I strive to provide students the opportunity to share my enthusiasm for psychology as a science, use critical thinking skills, and apply class concepts to their personal lives. In these opportunities, I encourage students to emulate scientists and to use their knowledge of science to help them master information. These invitations to think and to learn are offered to all students in the true spirit of science. My appreciation for scientific endeavors is fueled through new students who seek to accept my invitation and journey along the same path that I have chosen for myself.
