Office of the Chancellor and President
Greetings from the Chancellor
Bienvenido, bienvenue, welkom, welcome… to Texas Woman’s University, the nation’s largest university primarily for women. At TWU, faculty are known not only for their excellence in scholarship, teaching, and service but for the "care factor” that shows up in all that they do. I know that students who are inspired by faculty are more likely to succeed in life. The emphasis at TWU on student life and academic support also bolsters this idea of care. Through transcendent experiences, I believe what we do at the university should cultivate students so they can, in the immortal words of one of my favorite fictional characters, live long and prosper!
The Economist recently published university rankings of 1,275 four-year universities. It looked at what value an institution really adds to its students. I am pleased to say, TWU ranked 45th in the country. These results encapsulate part of TWU’s distinctive profile in higher education. Building on rich traditions, I am proud to boldly lead this institution that has contributed more than 100,000 graduates in fields vital to the growth and quality of life in Texas into a brave future.
