Elected as fellow in scholarly academy

An East Carolina University professor was the only professional in the nation elected this year as fellow to the American Academy of Park and Recreation Administration.


Dr. Deb Jordan, chair of the Department of Recreation and Leisure Studies in ECU’s College of Health and Human Performance, will join the ranks of a membership limited to 125 practitioners and educators.

The prestigious academy promotes public understanding and knowledge related to the administration of parks, recreation and conservation as well as conducting research and providing service to advance the profession. Elected fellows must have served a minimum of 15 years in the field and have demonstrated major contributions to the profession.

Jordan is among a select group of professional who have been elected as a fellow in three distinct scholarly academies. She was elected as a fellow to the 100-member Academy of Leisure Sciences in 2007 and to the 100-member American Leisure Academy in 2001.

She holds a doctorate in parks and recreation administration from Indiana University, a master of science in parks and recreation administration from Western Illinois University and a bachelor’s degree in parks and recreation from Slippery Rock State College. Jordan joined East Carolina University in 2009.
