Dr. Norma L. Day-Vines serves as Associate Dean for Faculty Development in the School of Education at Johns Hopkins University and maintains a faculty appointment as Professor of Counseling and Human Development. Prior to joining the faculty at Johns Hopkins University, she held tenured faculty positions at The College of William and Mary and Virginia Tech. Dr. Day-Vines’ research agenda examines the importance of multiculturalism as an indispensable tool in the delivery of culturally competent counseling and educational services for clients and students from marginalized groups. More specifically, she specializes in the measurement of attitudes towards discussing the contextual dimensions of race, ethnicity and culture with ethnic minority clients/students and the identification of strategies that reduce barriers to well-being. She has consulted with school districts across the country to address issues related to diversity, equity and inclusion. Her scholarship has appeared in leading counseling journals such as the Journal of Counseling and Development, the Journal of Multicultural Counseling and Development, the Journal of Measurement and Evaluation in Counseling and Development, and Professional School Counseling. Dr. Day-Vines was recognized with an Exemplary Diversity Leadership Award in 2013 by the Association of Multicultural Counseling and Development. In 2018, she received an Excellence in Teaching Award at Johns Hopkins University, and in 2019, she was awarded a Presidential Citation from the American Counseling Association, in recognition of her scholarship on multiculturalism. Norma earned her Bachelor’s degree from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and her Master’s and doctorate from North Carolina State University.
