Dr. Jean A. Richey

Assistant Professor of Communication

I joined the Department of Communication Faculty in 2008. I have a Ph.D. in Health Communication from the University of Alaska Fairbanks, M.A. in Professional Communication, and a B.A. in Psychology.

My academic interests include identity contruction in various contexts, Health Communication, Organizational Communication, Phenomenology and Qualitative Methodology, Interpersonal and Relational Communication, Critical Approaches to Gender Communication, Intercultural Communication, and Communication Theory.

I've lived in Alaska since 1993. During my years in Fairbanks and Juneau (I taught at the University of Alaska Southeast for five years), I've been able to enrich my life through quality interactions with diverse others both in my professional life and my personal life. The beauty and healing nature of Alaska's environment and abundant wildlife never cease to thrill me in my daily life.
