Kenneth C. Elliott, Ph.D.

Professor of Psychology

Hello. You've arrived at my webpage. Thanks for your interest or curiosity. My name is Ken Elliott. To some I'm know as “Dr. K”. I am a person, a practicing Buddhist, a man, a clinical psychologist (licensed in the state of Maine) and a member of the faculty at the University of Maine at Augusta.

Faculty members have essentially four kinds of responsibilities; teaching, research/scholarship, service to the community and service to the university. As a member of the College of Natural and Social Sciences, I teach a variety of (undergraduate) courses ranging from introductory courses (to psychology and to the social sciences) to upper level courses in research methods, gender studies and cross cultural studies.

I was born in 1946 in Hollywood, California. My family's histories reflect my Yugoslavian and Scottish roots. I have lived in Japan and Canada and been fortunate enough to travel far and wide. I moved to Maine from Canada in 1987. I've been settling as a member of a very small town in the woods (Mount Vernon) ever since. My family of origin remains in California as they have for four generations. I live alone but by no means a solitary life. I received my BA from Wesleyan University in Connecticut majoring in Asian Sociology. After serving in the Peace Corps (Sri Lanka) I completed my Masters Degree (in psychology) at the New School for Social Research in New York City. I then moved back to California where I completed my Ph.D. (in C. Psych.) at Alliance University in San Diego.
