Carie Forden received her PhD in social psychology from the State University of New York at Stony Brook in 1990. She enjoys teaching and mentoring students and has published and presented on the teaching of psychology. One of her teaching innovations, an online partnership between students at The American University in Cairo (AUC), was recognized with an Action Teaching Award by The Social Psychology Network in the United States.

In the area of community psychology, Forden has published on smoking prevention, community psychology in Egypt, and organizational capacity-building.
