TWU names Dr. Jimmy H. Ishee new dean of the College of Health Sciences



DENTON – Increasing Texas Woman’s University’s College of Health Sciences’ visibility in academic circles and beyond is the goal of Dr. Jimmy H. Ishee, the college’s new dean. Dr. Ishee began his duties at TWU on Aug. 1.

“Though TWU is known as a health science institution, many are unaware of how diverse our programs are and how well we deliver them to a variety of students,” Dr. Ishee said. “In addition to traditional undergraduate students, more than half of the students in health sciences are at the post-professional or graduate level, and TWU excels at creating programs that meet all their needs.”

“TWU is very fortunate to have such an accomplished educator and administrator joining the university,” Interim Provost Dr. Carolyn Gunning said.

Dr. Ishee earned his bachelor’s and master’s degrees in education from the Department of Health, Physical Education and Recreation at Delta State University in Cleveland, Mississippi. He received his doctorate of philosophy from the Department of Movement Science and Physical Education from Florida State University.

Dr. Ishee most recently served as the dean of the School of Health Sciences at Georgia College and State University. Prior to his service in Georgia, he spent nearly 20 years in various roles at the University of Central Arkansas, including 12 years as associate dean of the College of Health and Applied Sciences.

TWU’s College of Health Sciences has more than 1,500 students and includes the departments of communication sciences and disorders, dental hygiene, health care administration, health studies, kinesiology, nutrition and food sciences, the School of Physical Therapy, the School of Occupational Therapy and the Institute for Women's Health.
