Her 11 years of service to Shorter serve as a solid foundation to Dr. Hickman’s newest role at the university, and Dr. Hickman said she is happy to again be a part of Shorter University and its close-knit community.
During her time at Shorter, Dr. Hickman was a member of the Graduate Admissions Committee, the Strategic Planning Committee and the Online Education Task Force. She served as the faculty advisor for the Phi Mu sorority, co-chaired the Shorter Hawks Baseball Team annual fundraiser and developed memorial scholarships for the College of Business.

She is affiliated with the American Accounting Association, the Association of Certified Fraud Examiners, Sigma Beta Delta, Alpha Chi Honor Society, Beta Gamma Sigma, Beta Alpha Psi, the Institute of Internal Auditors and the National Graduate Admissions Professionals.
The opportunity to serve as dean of the Ledbetter College of Business aligns with her high standards as an educator, as well as her desire to give back to the Rome community, Dr. Hickman said.
“The Robert H. Ledbetter College of Business is dedicated to the highest standards of academic excellence, promoting Christian values, and serving the community,” she added.
Dr. Hickman and her husband, Matt, have three children, Cole, Grady, and Emily. They attend First Presbyterian Church of Rome.
