Azalea Hulbert, PhD
Dr. Hulbert has served as the Director of Academic Integrity since September 2018, and holds primary responsibility for engaging the campus community in outreach around academic integrity and for resolution of academic misconduct.
Dr. Hulbert joined West Virginia University as Director of Academic Integrity in September 2018, bringing more than a decade of experience as a practitioner, researcher and consultant at postsecondary institutions. She is recognized as a presenter and facilitator both domestically and abroad and has not only published on critical applied issues of concern such as student development and higher education law but has also designed, developed and implemented on-campus initiatives focused on integrity.
Hulbert earned her BS in human environmental sciences from the University of North Alabama, her master’s in business administration from Samford University and her Ph.D. in higher education administration with a focus on academic integrity from Penn State University. As part of her dissertation research, she developed a comprehensive, multi-faceted qualitative assessment instrument to evaluate ways in which academic environments influence students’ personal values and beliefs on academic integrity.
In 2013, in partnership with the International Center for Academic Integrity (ICAI), Hulbert founded the ICAI Southeastern U.S. Regional Consortium, a collaborative group of faculty, staff and students from universities across the Southeast seeking to identify and implement best practices in managing academic misconduct. She led this group from 2013 to 2014. She continues her involvement with ICAI, currently serving on the organization's Board of Directors and working actively with the Mid-Atlantic Regional Consortium.
