Dr. Debra Meyers, professor of History, has been a member of the NKU faculty since 2001 and has since had a dramatic impact on the university and her students. Meyers ranks among the very best professors. Students consistently find her courses engaging and challenging. They applaud her for her knowledge, preparation, understanding, and fairness. Her classes, ranging from American history, to gender and religion, to feminist theology, and many others, reflect both her breadth and depth of her experience and knowledge.
Meyers’ active encouragement and leadership prompted her department to adopt the university’s fledging Women’s & Gender Studies (WGS) Program in 2009. Meyers rebuilt the program and the number of students enrolled in WGS classes burgeoned. With a commitment to expanding educational opportunities for all students, she established an online minor in WGS, one of the first at NKU and she led her department in creating an online BA degree program in History, the second one in the nation.
As a scholar, Dr. Meyers is a recognized expert in American women’s history and American colonial history. She has published eight books, numerous articles and book chapters, and given many presentations at scholarly conferences. She is currently working on two new publication projects: Gender, Love, and Religion in the Early Chesapeake and Misogyny and Christianity.
Meyers was recognized for her achievements with NKU’s 2019 Frank Sinton Milburn Outstanding Professor Award, which honors a faculty member who has demonstrated excellence in teaching, scholarship and service over the course of her career. Meyers’ students also extol the ways in which she encourages each one to succeed. In 2017, she received the Outstanding Faculty Advisor Award, nominated by online students she had never met face to face, but who were still so impacted by her tireless work as a teacher, mentor, and service-oriented faculty member.
