Mavis Adjei, Professor

Born and raised in Ghana, West Africa, Adjei is an ocean away from home, but she feels right at home in southern Illinois. “I love Southern Illinois and what I love most about SIU is its culture. We have a very challenging but nurturing atmosphere. Most schools are either academically challenging or nurturing; hardly do you find one that strives to achieve both. I love that our students benefit from my colleagues’ world-class teaching and research expertise. I believe this increases the chances that our students will find and keep their dream jobs”, said Adjei.
