Azalea Hulbert, PhD

Director of Academic Integrity

Dr. Hulbert joined West Virginia University as Director of Academic Integrity in September 2018. Hulbert brings 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 published on critical applied issues of concern, including student development and higher education law. She 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 and her master’s in business administration from Samford University. She then earned 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 how academic environments influence students’ beliefs and actions related to academic integrity. 

In 2013, in partnership with the International Center for Academic Integrity (ICAI), Hulbert founded the ICAI Southeastern U.S. Regional Consortium. From 2013 to 2014, she led this collaborative group of faculty, staff, and students from universities across the Southeast as they worked together to identify and implement best practices in managing academic misconduct. She continues her involvement with ICAI, currently serving on the organization's Board of Directors and working actively with the Mid-Atlantic Regional Consortium. 

Hulbert also holds a courtesy appointment as Assistant Professor in the College of Education & Human Services at WVU, where she engages in both service and teaching activities.
