Alumna Michele Lockhart

I am currently working as a Director of Programs and Accreditation for Academic Affairs and Office of the Provost and also as a Clinical Assistant Professor in the School of Arts, Technology, and Emerging Communication at The University of Texas at Dallas. Prior to this, I was a Senior Lecturer in the Business Communication program and the Academic Director for International Partnerships in the Jindal School of Management at UT Dallas.

My research interests include political rhetoric, women in politics, and technical and business communication. I have had the privilege of presenting my research and/or serving as a keynote/guest speaker in over 30 conferences nationwide. I have also published three co-edited collections through Lexington Books, an imprint of Rowman & Littlefield: Political Women: Language and Leadership (2013); Global Women Leaders: Studies in Feminist Political Rhetoric (2014); Hillary Rodham Clinton and the 2016 Election: Her Political and Social Discourse (2015).

My education includes degrees in broadcast journalism (The University of Texas at El Paso, B.A. 2000), political science (Texas A&M International University, M.A. 2006), and rhetoric (Texas Woman’s University, Ph.D. 2010). My previous professional experience also constitutes serving as an analyst for the U.S. Government Accountability Office (GAO), a broadcast journalist and bureau chief, working on a gubernatorial re-election campaign, and writing speeches for an elected official.
