Angie S. Baker serves as Director of Testing and Disability Services at Augusta University.
She initially began her career in the University System of Georgia in 1991 as Senior Administrative Secretary in the Psychology Department at Augusta College while working on her BA in Psychology. Upon graduation in 1994 (Magna Cum Laude), she resigned her position in 1995 for full-time pursuit of her Master’s degree in Psychology at Augusta College.
She graduated with her MS in Psychology from Augusta State University in 1996. Angie completed her EdS in Educational Leadership at Augusta University in May 2013.
After working in the Augusta area as a counselor for a day treatment program, an office manager for a psychiatric group and a counselor for a residential drug program, Ms. Baker returned to Augusta State University in 2000 as Coordinator of Testing and Disability Services in the Counseling and Testing Center. She served in that position until 2006, when it became necessary for Augusta State University to make Testing and Disability Services a separate unit. At that time, she began her duties as Director which includes ensuring that the University is compliant with ADA, Section 504 Standards; reviewing documentation and establishing appropriate accommodations; working with faculty, students, and parents to resolve questions regarding accommodations; oversee standardized testing, including scheduling and training; and to ensure test security and standardization procedures. She supervises two testing specialists, a disability service coordinator, and an administrative assistant.
During her tenure as Director, there has been a steady increase in the number of students with disabilities here at the University. Testing services have gone through numerous changes, including more options for computer-based testing. Also during this time the University supported the growth of the facility to accommodate the testing needs for both students with disabilities and for students without disabilities. Testing Services now houses a computer lab with 136 machines. Mrs. Baker also serves on the On-Line Education Council, Care Team, and the Study Abroad Committees on campus.
