DENTON – Texas Woman’s University announces that Dr. Jennifer L. Martin has been appointed as the new vice provost for the university. Dr. Martin, who will continue to serve as the dean of the TWU Graduate School, began her new position Jan. 5.

“I look forward to assisting the provost in ensuring that the university is successful in achieving our academic goals,” Dr. Martin said. “I am thrilled to be working closely with both a provost and a group of leaders for whom I have already developed such respect.”

As part of her new duties, Dr. Martin will oversee Academic Support Services, including the following TWU departments: Financial Aid, the TWU Libraries, Enrollment Services, Academic Outreach (P-16), Research and Sponsored Programs and Lifelong Learning. She also will assist in academic policy review and development and will work closely with the TWU Office of Institutional Effectiveness and Research in the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools (SACS) reaffirmation process.

“Dr. Martin has demonstrated a strong commitment to providing students with an exceptional education during her tenure at TWU,” said TWU Provost Dr. Kay Clayton. “She is highly respected by her colleagues; and, in her new position, she will make important contributions that will ensure continued success.”

Dr. Martin has been the dean of the TWU Graduate School since 2002. She has served the university in a variety of positions since 1986, including associate dean for graduate studies, chair of the Department of Family Sciences and professor of Family Sciences. She is the state co-chair for the Texas Women in Higher Education and is the secretary/treasurer for the Association of Texas Graduate Schools. She also is a member of the Council of Graduate Schools and serves on two committees for the Council of Southern Graduate Schools.
