Paul E. Levy was born and raised in Baltimore, Maryland, the youngest of his family's five children. He received his BA in pyschology and economics from Washington & Lee University and earned his MA and PhD in industrial/organizational (I/O) psychology from Virginia Tech. A faculty member at The University of Akron since 1989 and Chair of the Department of Psychology since 2005, Dr. Levy has been very involved in the development and training of hundreds of graduate students there. During his tenure, he has also provided many undergraduates with their first exposure to the field of I/O psychology through his Introduction to Industrial/Organizational Psychology course. Dr. Levy's consulting and research interests include performance appraisal, feedback, recruitment, organizational justice, and organizational surveys/attitudes. He has published his scholarly work in many psychology and management journals, including the Journal of Applied Psychology, Journal of Personality and Social Psychology, Organizational and Human Decision Processes, and Academy of Management Journal. Dr. Levy is married to Sylvia Chinn-Levy and has three boys (Christopher, Sean, and Jared) who are, amazingly, more interested in sports, music, and reading than they are in psychology. Dr. Levy is an avid baseball and basketball fan, youth sports coach, basketball player, and a lifelong fan of the Baltimore Orioles.
