As director, she will be responsible for administering the multidisciplinary undergraduate (BLS) and the graduate (MLS) degree programs in Liberal Studies. This includes managing and revising curricula as well as overseeing the growth of the programs. Dr. Hinds brings to the position her years of experience as department chair and graduate coordinator. She served as chair of the English department for six years and as interim chair of the Communication Department for a year and a half. During her sixteen years at Brockport, she has also directed the English graduate program for four years, served on the MALS advisory board and participated in Middle States reaccreditation efforts to name just a few of her service contributions.
