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 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.”
