A native of Arkansas, Dr. Bailey arrived at UMF in 2000 after attending graduate school in Idaho. As an undergraduate, he received a degree in history as well as mathematics, which explains a rather keen interest in the history of mathematics. In his time at UMF, he has been involved with grants that focused on enhancing communication between math and science teachers at all levels and helping to better prepare high school students for college level mathematics classes. He has served as Chair of the Division of Mathematics and Computer Science since the fall of 2014 and is currently serving as chair of the Faculty Development Committee. Outside of school, Allen likes to read, hike, plant trees, and root for the Arkansas Razorbacks.
