TWU’s Walsh represents state’s graduate students on THECB committee


DENTON — Bridget Walsh, a doctoral student in child development at Texas Woman’s University, recently was appointed to represent the state’s graduate students on the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board (THECB) Graduate Education Advisory Committee.

Ms. Walsh, of Crystal Lake, Penn., is the only student on the committee, which is comprised of graduate deans, provosts and graduate faculty from institutions throughout Texas. The next committee meeting is scheduled March 19 in Austin.

“It is a tremendous responsibility, but also an opportunity to be part of a decision-making process,” Ms. Walsh said of her appointment. “I’m very pleased to represent graduate students, and honored to represent TWU.”

As the student representative on the committee, Ms. Walsh will be involved in studying varied issues in graduate education and making recommendations to the Coordinating Board.

Dr. Jennifer Martin, dean of the TWU Graduate School, recommended Ms. Walsh for the post after seeing her take part in a faculty/student collaborative team seeking a grant to support a research and service project.

“When the team met with the head of the foundation from which they were seeking funding, Bridget answered difficult questions with complete poise and confidence in her knowledge about the project,” Dr. Martin said. “This led me to the conclusion that she could confidently express the student point of view on this important, statewide committee.”

Ms. Walsh has co-authored several journal articles and has made numerous presentations on child development and other issues. She has taught courses at TWU, and currently serves as a research assistant. Ms. Walsh also is an adjunct instructor at the University of North Texas.
