Barbour receives TWU’s Uhlir Fellowship


DENTON — Dr. JoAnn Danelo Barbour, professor of educational leadership at Texas Woman’s University, is the recipient of TWU’s 2007 Dr. G. Ann Uhlir Endowed Fellowship for Higher Education Administration.

“Early in my academic career, I had the privilege of working with Dr. Uhlir, watching and learning about university leadership,” Dr. Barbour said. “It is an honor to receive the fellowship, because I believe the wheel has come full circle. I not only have an opportunity to learn, but to continue what Dr. Uhlir modeled.”

Dr. Barbour will use the $1,200 award to assist in developing TWU faculty leadership and to develop global leadership understanding in TWU faculty and graduate students. Her plans include inviting an expert in leadership development to speak on campus, and developing a university faculty learning community whose focus is to develop global leadership-learning opportunities for other faculty members and graduate students.

The Dr. G. Ann Uhlir Endowed Fellowship for Higher Education Administration is designed to take beginning administrators, faculty or students interested in administration and help them develop the leadership, management and interpersonal skills needed to be a highly qualified and successful academic administrator. Dr. Ann Uhlir, founding dean of the TWU College of Health Sciences, provided initial funding for the fellowship in 1996.
