Dr. Victoria McGillin named new TWU Associate Provost



DENTON – Enhancing Texas Woman’s University’s faculty development resources and reinforcing the link between liberal arts and the health sciences are the goals of TWU’s new associate provost, Dr. Victoria McGillin, who began her duties Aug. 1.

“Dr. McGillin is committed to enriching the faculty experience at TWU,” Interim Provost Dr. Carolyn Gunning said. “She wants to ensure that TWU faculty have all the resources necessary in order to be successful teachers and leaders in their field.”

“Faculty development is essential in the retention and recruitment of quality faculty,” Dr. McGillin said. “My goal is to guide faculty to the many resources available at TWU and to develop new programs that assist professors in meeting today’s students’ needs.”

In addition to faculty development, Dr. McGillin is also committed to linking together the fields of liberal arts, health sciences and other areas of study at TWU.

“I believe the infusion of liberal arts and health science is not only possible, but necessary,” Dr. McGillin said. “Our future healthcare providers, scientists, researchers and other leaders must be able to effectively communicate with each other and the world in order to make a difference.”

Prior to coming to TWU, Dr. McGillin spent 14 years with Wheaton College in Massachusetts, serving most recently as the assistant provost and dean of studies. Prior to her service at Wheaton, Dr. McGillin was the associate dean and director of academic advising for Clark University.

Dr. McGillin earned her bachelor of science in psychology and her master of science in clinical psychology from Pennsylvania State University. She received her Ph.D. in clinical psychology from Michigan State University.

Dr. McGillin replaces professor and Associate Provost Emeritus Dr. Wilkes Berry, who retired in August after 24 years of service to TWU.
