An enthusiastic advocate of new technologies, Ann Hill Duin has transformed the curriculum in Scientific and Technical Communication—and the lives of graduate students.

“What I experienced was someone who I believe feels that teaching and guiding students is not just her job, but is likely her calling and purpose,” says a former advisee.

She chaired the committee that developed her department’s M.A. and Ph.D. programs in Rhetoric and Scientific and Technical Communication and has served as director of graduate studies for these and other programs, including, currently, the M.S. and certificate programs in Scientific and Technical Communication.

I am a scholar of collaboration and shared leadership, working to deploy technologies in ways that work to transform student lives and organizations.

Duin developed the University’s first online graduate-level course and, with graduate students, established the Wearables Research Collaboratory to study emerging technologies and their rhetorical and social implications. In her International Professional Communication course, grad students lead global, multicultural virtual teams—an invaluable career advantage.

A popular professor, she regularly publishes peer-reviewed research with graduate students, and has formally advised 50 to degree completion. Hill Duin is also co-founder and co-director of an advisory board that lends external expertise and experiential opportunities for graduate students.

As a mentor, “She combines remarkable experience in teaching, research, and academic administration with a compassionate, engaged approach,” notes a doctoral student.
