Dr. Heather Shea (she/her/hers)

Director of Women*s Student Services

Heather came to MSU with a deep commitment to gender equity initiatives for students on college and university campuses, having recently worked as the Director of a Women’s Center in Idaho. She is committed to antiracist, intersectional feminism and working alongside college students who want to make the world a better place. She is a transplant to the midwest: she grew up in the western U.S., completed her undergraduate degrees and master’s degrees at Colorado State University. Heather completed her PhD at MSU in higher education administration. Her dissertation was a feminist narrative analysis of former college students’ engagement in a feminist play called The Vagina Monologues. In addition to working in Women*s Student Services, each summer she leads an undergraduate education abroad program called Learning, Culture, and Technology in Europe. Outside of campus, Heather loves to camp, hike, run, and garden. She is an avid reader and loves to travel to National Parks.
