The School of Education, Health and Human Behavior will see new leadership soon, as Robin Hughes was selected to be dean after a national search. Hughes is projected to start her new position on Aug. 1, after her appointment is approved by the Board of Trustees. Hughes will succeed interim dean Paul Rose.

 

Hughes was a professor within the Indiana University School of Education in Indianapolis. Much of Hughes’ teaching experience includes courses surrounding African American studies.

 

Hughes was executive associate dean of Indiana University’s School of Education, senior adviser to the chancellor of Indiana University and Purdue University’s combined campus and vice president of Indiana University’s Race and Accountability in Campus Programs.

 

Throughout her academic career, Hughes has studied student athletes and issues of race in collegiate athletics. Hughes is the co-editor and co-founder of the “Journal for the Study of Sports and Athletes in Education,” and served as the faculty athletic representative for Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis Horizon League.

 

Rose will remain at the university as the associate dean of the School of Education, Health and Human Behavior. He said he looks forward to the fresh perspectives Hughes will bring.
