Michael J. Stankey appointed as new TWU associate provost


Texas Woman’s University announces that Dr. Michael J. Stankey has been appointed as the new associate provost for the university.

“I was really struck by the genuine commitment to student excellence expressed by so many of the faculty and staff that I met at TWU,” Dr. Stankey said. “I am excited to jump into the rich tradition of this university.”

As part of his duties, Dr. Stankey will oversee the TWU Dallas and Houston campuses, the TWU Institutional Effectiveness and Research department, Academic Outreach and the web management team. He also will be involved in TWU’s Southern Association of Colleges and Schools (SACS) re-accreditation, data analysis, policy review and faculty development.

“Dr. Stankey’s expertise will serve him well in his leadership role at TWU, particularly in his involvement in TWU’s SACS reaffirmation,” TWU Provost Dr. Kay Clayton said.

Dr. Stankey has spent the last 14 years in various leadership roles at the University of Evansville in Indiana, including the director of the Center for Teaching Excellence at the university and chair of the department of communication. Prior to his service at the University of Evansville, Dr. Stankey was a professor of advertising for the University of Tennessee at Knoxville.

He earned his Ph.D. and master’s degree from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign and his bachelor’s degree from Purdue University.

Dr. Stankey, who begins work at TWU June 1, replaces former TWU associate provost Dr. Victoria McGillin, who is now vice president of academic affairs and dean of faculty at Linfield College in Oregon.
