A Message from the Chancellor and President

It is my pleasure to share with you the Texas Woman's University Faculty Handbook. This handbook represents a joint effort of the Faculty Senate and the University administration to provide new and continuing faculty with information about our University.

Please familiarize yourself with the contents of this handbook and keep it as a convenient reference. Should you have questions that are not answered in the Faculty Handbook, please contact your department chair, dean, or the Provost and Vice President for Academic Affairs.

I look forward to working with you to fulfill the mission of Texas Woman's University and to ensure academic excellence and the promise of a quality education for all of our students.
