Her wide-ranging experiences in teaching and scholarly activities, along with her significant leadership background will enhance the strengths of the SEHHB, as well as provide strong advocacy and support for innovation moving forward. I am deeply grateful to the search committee, co-chaired by Dr. Jeremy Jewell and Dr. Alison Reeves, for their thoughtful work and engagement during this important and complex process.”

“I am looking forward to joining faculty and staff colleagues, and the many students from the wide array of programs housed in the SIUE School of Education, Health and Human Behavior,” said Hughes. “I am excited to strengthen existing and establish new, thoughtful connections with p-12 schools, institutions of higher education, and organizations that are both unique and critical to the School. I am equally enthusiastic about supporting the continued good work and efforts of such a diverse disciplinary group of experts in their respective fields. I can’t wait to hit the ground running!”

“We welcome Dr. Hughes to SIUE and the School of Education, Health and Human Behavior,” added Chancellor Randy Pembrook PhD. “The School provides a broad range of majors and career paths to our students. Dr. Hughes’ multiplicity of experiences in higher education means she is highly prepared to lead our SEHHB efforts in the future. In particular, at this critical time when excellent p-12 teachers are in high demand in our state, Dr. Hughes’ understanding of curricular issues, research relating to student experiences, and pedagogical excellence will further SIUE’s role in addressing this challenge.”

Her graduate level teaching has included such courses as readings in critical race theory, diverse students on college campuses, sports and athletes in education, African Americans in higher education, and research throughout the p-20 educational continuum.
