About Keith Jones

Keith Jones has taught at Central College since 2006. He is a developmental psychologist at heart and is fascinated by human behavior in general. Jones is a Distinguished Alumnus of the West Virginia University Psychology Department.

Convinced that a liberal arts education is a key component to solving problems in society, Jones happily helps students see the connections between their ideas and research, diverse disciplines, class work and the world beyond Central. When away from the classroom, he can be found supporting his wife, sons and daughters-in-law in their many activities. He loves running; smoking copious amounts of meat; attending Central arts and athletics events; and helping coach the Central softball team.
