Professor Shelley Green, Ph.D., has been honored with the 2016-17 President’s Distinguished Professor Award of Excellence.


Green is part of the College of Arts, Humanities, and Social Sciences’ Department of Family Therapy and teaches two equine therapy courses run in partnership with the Davie-based nonprofit Stable Place. The equine assisted therapy program works with individuals, couples, families, and professionals.

According to NSU, the award is “conferred upon faculty who have achieved national and/or international prominence and have earned a distinguished reputation through significant contributions to research and scholarship and exceptional instruction.”

Green, who has been with NSU since 1991, served as director of the department’s Ph.D. program and has sat on multiple committees, including the Faculty Advisory Council and faculty search committees. She has also served on the American Association for Marriage and Family Therapy’s (AAMFT) Ethics Committee and Elections Council. Green co-edited Quickies: The Handbook of Brief Sex Therapy with her husband and colleague, Professor Douglas Flemons, Ph.D. In 2015, Green was honored as Professor of the Year at CAHSS’ predecessor, the Graduate School of Humanities and Social Sciences.
