Howell, as part of CU’s Faculty Colloquium Series, said, “We will explore the likelihood that these differences are the result of socialization rather than the result of being different in our essence as males and females,” she said.

“Misunderstandings often exist between the genders and how to minimize the confusion,” Howell said.

“Is it true that men are from Mars and women from Venus?” Howell said. Her speech will address that phenomenon.

She received her bachelor of science degree in psychology from Campbellsville College in 1982 and both her master of education degree from 1988 and her doctorate in education in 1995 from the University of Louisville.

She has been published in The Journal of Divorce and Remarriage, The American Journal of Orthopsychiatry and The Journal for Specialists in Group Work.

Howell is a member of the American Psychological Association, the Christian Association for Psychological Studies and the Christians for Biblical Equality.

Howell has been employed at CU since 1994.

She is the wife of Dr. Dwayne Howell, who also serves at CU as professor of Old Testament and Hebrew. They have two children: Patrick and Katelyn.

Campbellsville University is a widely acclaimed Kentucky-based Christian university with more than 3,500 students offering 63 undergraduate options, 17 master’s degrees, five postgraduate areas and eight pre-professional programs. The website for complete information is
