Rick Davis

Dean, College of Visual and Performing Arts, George Mason University
Professor, School of Theater
Executive Director, Hylton Performing Arts Center,

Davis, who has been working with the university since 1992, oversees seven academic programs and two performing arts centers.

“I have worked on both academic, and non-academic fronts…I’ve had about five different [roles] at the University. The first was running our theater company, and chairing the theater department. And then I became interim director of the Institute of the Arts, which is a predecessor to the college that we now have. Then artistic director for our Center of the Arts in Fairfax, and then Associate Provost for Undergraduate Education, and then I came to the Hylton [Performing Arts] Center in 2011,” said Davis.

Carryl Baldwin

Associate Professor and Director of the PhD Program, Department of Psychology, George Mason University

Dr. Baldwin teaches and conducts research in conjunction with the Human Factors and Applied Cognition program. She has over 20 years of experience investigating human factors issues in mental workload, surface and air transportation and cognitive aging.

Her primary research interests are in the area of Applied Auditory Cognition. Much of her work involves the use of neurophysiological measures (i.e., EEG, ERP, EKG, and eye tracking) to examine the effort expended when people perform multiple modality dual tasks as a function of changes in sensory or environmental condition or cognitive aspects of the task.

Oscar Barton, Jr.

Professor and Department Chair, Mechanical Engineering, Volgenau School of Engineering, George Mason University

Barton joined the faculty of George Mason University in the fall semester of 2014 after completing a 22-year career at the United States Naval Academy, where he was one of only three African Americans to obtain the rank of tenured full professor and the first within the academy’s Division of Engineering and Weapons.

As the department Chairman, he oversaw the accreditation of two engineering programs and the creation of the Nuclear Engineering program, the first in the history of the U.S. Naval Academy. His research focuses on the analysis of dynamic systems, closed-form solutions for linear self-adjoint systems, and systems that govern the responses of composite structures.
