Sheneka Williams is professor and chair of the Department of Educational Administration. Williams's research focuses in two main areas: rural education and school desegregation. Her research specifically examines educational opportunity for African American students in rural contexts, and the resulting effects of (de)segregated schools on students of color.

Aspects of her research have been presented at The National Press Club, American Enterprise Institute, and on CNN and NPR.
