Krista Bailey Murphy, Ph.D. serves as the Vice President for Strategic Innovation and Title IX Coordinator at Chestnut Hill College.  Krista holds a Ph.D. in Educational Psychology from Temple University, where her dissertation focused on risk mitigation strategies amongst high-risk, high-achieving college students.  She also has an MA from The Ohio State University (Go Buckeyes!) in Higher Education and Student Affairs and a BA from Ursinus College where she played soccer and was inducted into Phi Beta Kappa.

Krista has worked at Chestnut Hill College for almost eighteen years.  The majority of her time at CHC was spent in Student Life and she is excited that she now has the privilege of engaging with the CHC community in new ways as she works with Student Success, Neurodiversity, and the Center for Accessibility and Learning Services.  Drawing from the charism of the Sisters of Saint Joseph and the mission of Chestnut Hill College, Krista centers her work on a deep commitment to just relationships – relationships that honor the dignity of all persons and prioritize diversity, equity, and inclusion.

More important than anything she does at work, Krista is married to Ryan, who is an Assistant Professor of Sociology at CHC, and the mother to Liam - the coolest 10-year-old she knows.  Krista enjoys coaching Liam’s soccer team, running marathons, driving all over for youth sports, eating all the carbs that Ryan cooks for her, and more than anything, traveling with her family.
