James R. Hine, Ph.D.

Legacy Leader and Professor Emeritus, Family Studies and Human Development

Dr. Hine taught thousands of students, and joined in marriage and subsequently counseled hundreds of couples.  Many of his former students recognize him as one of the most caring and effective of teachers. Dr. Hine’s scholarly work has also greatly informed our understanding of what makes relationships strong, as evidenced by a 2004 Arizona Daily Star article, which reported on his 20-year longitudinal study of more than 100 couples. Dr. Hine was a recipient of the CALES lifetime Achievement Award.
