Annette S. Kluck, PhD

Annette S. Kluck, PhD, is the Dean of the Graduate School and a professor of counseling and Leadership Education at the University of Mississippi. She previously worked at Auburn University (2006-2019), serving as a faculty member in the APA-accredited Counseling Psychology program, directing/co-directing the program from 2011-2019 and leading efforts to advance gender equity as the assistant provost for Women’s Initiatives within the Office of Inclusion and Diversity (2017-2019). Her research focuses on women’s issues including body image, disordered eating and sexual behavior and concerns. She studies how sociocultural risk factors may place some women at greater risk for developing problems in these areas, with an emphasis on family-based messages about size and shape, internalization of societal messages that place women’s value in their ability to be perfect and pleasing (often sexually) to others and perceived expectations for attractiveness and behavior. Kluck also examines how intersecting identities inform these experiences in women. As an associate editor, she enjoys reviewing innovative research that contributes to feminist scholarship and scientific understanding of women’s experiences.
