Dr. Blythe Duell of Southeastern Oklahoma State University has been named one of the Top 20 Women Professors in Oklahoma. The goal of the top professors list is to highlight postsecondary educators who have been awarded recently for excellence in the classroom, on campus, and/or in the community.
Duell is an assistant professor of psychology. She joined the Southeastern faculty in 2008, and was the recipient of the university’s Faculty Senate Professor of the Year award in 2012. She grew up in Laramie, Wyoming, and received her bachelor’s degree in psychology from the University of Wyoming. Duell earned her master’s and doctorate in experimental social psychology from Washington State University.
She teaches courses in statistics, research methods, social psychology, and psychology of gender. Duell enjoys music, reading, and spending time with her husband and 7-month-old daughter.
“I am incredibly honored and humbled to have been selected for this award,’’ Duell said. “I can’t tell you how much I enjoy teaching and engaging young people in discussions about psychology. I am profoundly lucky to make a living doing something that doesn’t even feel like “work” most days.”
Also honored in the Top 20 by Online Schools Oklahoma was Dr. Jeretta Horn Nord, professor of management science and information systems at Oklahoma State University’s Spears School of Business, and Dr. Amanda Minks, Reach for Excellence Assistant Professor in the University of Oklahoma Honors College.
Nord is a graduate of Southeastern who was honored with the University’s Distinguished Alumni Award in 2008, and is the author/founder of the “A Cup of Cappuccino for the Entrepreneur’s Spirit” book series. The third volume, “Women Entrepreneurs’ Edition,’’ was named among the Best of 2010 Small Business Books by SmallBizTrends.com.
Minks is the daughter of President Minks and Joan. She teaches with the Departments of Anthropology, Native American Studies, Gender and Women’s Studies, and Musicology. Her honors courses focus on music, language, and cultural politics in the Americas.
