She is an Indiana University Distinguished Alumnus.  
Dr. Gregg’s research focuses on the advancement of women in athletics and higher education. She has published and presented on topics spanning Title IX, diversity in sport, pay inequity, and the experience of student-athletes. Her work on the status of female student-athletes is intimately connected with her work in intercollegiate athletics and leadership development. Her role as secretary of the Northeast Florida Chapter of Girls on the Run and associated volunteer work has allowed her to support thousands of young women as they develop their self-confidence, physical fitness, emotional well-being, and communication skills.
