Amanda Hinnant Wins the Outstanding Woman in Journalism and Mass Communication Education Award

Amanda Hinnant, an associate professor in the School of Journalism at the University of Missouri, Columbia, has been named the recipient of the Outstanding Woman in Journalism and Mass Communication Education award from the Association for Education in Journalism and Mass Communication.

The award recognizes a woman who has represented fellow women in the academy through personal excellence and high standards in journalism education. The award is given for exceptional merit, not on an annual basis.

“I am honored and grateful to be recognized,” Dr. Hinnant said. “This field has an abundance of women who are dedicated to journalism and mass communication education, and I am lucky to call them colleagues. I would be remiss if I didn’t acknowledge our tremendously talented students who have challenged and inspired me over the past 15 years.”

Dr. Hinnant joined the faculty at the University of Missouri in 2007 as an assistant professor. She was promoted to associate professor and granted tenure in 2014.

Dr. Hinnart is a graduate of Bates College in Lewiston, Maine, where she majored in English. She holds a master’s degree in journalism from the University of Missouri and a Ph.D. from the School of Communication at Northwestern University in Evanston, Illinois.
