Hooper also led the former School of Health and Human Performance for four years, from 2007 to 2011, and the Department of Communication Sciences and Disorders for four years, from 2003 to 2007. A full professor, Hooper continues to teach classes to undergraduate and graduate students.
Chancellor Linda P. Brady lauded Hooper’s leadership and service to the university. “Celia Hooper is a transformational academic leader, a citizen of the university, and a person who embodies UNCG’s commitment to ‘Do something bigger altogether,’” Brady said. “I expect great things from the School of Health and Human Sciences under her leadership.”
Prior to joining UNCG, Hooper served as a faculty member, clinician and administrator in roles at UNC-Chapel Hill, the University of Kansas and Case Western Reserve University, and owned and operated a speech-language pathology business.
