About Brandon Hunt

There are so many great aspects to my job, but working with students is my favorite. I teach graduate students in Counselor Education and undergraduate students in Rehabilitation and Human Services. They are smart, funny, and committed to working with people in a helping capacity, and I’m proud to work with them. I value professional and community service. I serve on the National Board for Certified Counselors, and previously served on the CACREP Board. I also serve on the board of Strawberry Fields, Inc., which is a local agency that provides services to people with intellectual and mental health disabilities. In addition to board service, I served on the editorial board for the Journal of Counseling & Development for 19 years, most recently as the Qualitative Associate Editor. I think qualitative inquiry is such a good match for counseling research, and I particularly gravitate toward phenomenological inquiry.

“Work Email Is a Task That Needs to be Tamed, Not Ignored” – HigherEdJobs

Make email a visible task. Emens refers to admin work as invisible labor because it’s not recognized as work tasks but something people do compulsively on devices while multitasking. Try giving this task a name, that is, build it into your to-do list or time on your calendar.”
