Dr. Carolyn Gunning to serve as TWU Provost


DENTON — Dr. Carolyn Gunning has been appointed provost and vice president for academic affairs at Texas Woman’s University. Dr. Gunning has served as the TWU interim provost since May.

“This is a dynamic time for TWU. We are in the midst of strategic planning and preparing to open a new campus in Houston, while continuing to meet the academic needs of a growing student body,” said TWU President andChancellor Dr. Ann Stuart. “For these reasons and because I respect the leadership and work of Dr. Gunning, I invited her to remain in the position of provost for an extended period of time and she accepted.”

Dr. Gunning served as interim provost during the 2003-2004 academic year and as the dean of TWU’s College of Nursing from 1991 to 2003. She also served as dean of the Marshall University School of Nursing.

Dr. Gunning earned her bachelor of science degree in nursing from TWU, her master of science degree in medical-surgical nursing from the University of Colorado and her doctorate degree in curriculum and instruction from the University of Texas at Austin. She is a recipient of the Texas Woman’s University Great 100 Nursing Alumni Award, the TWU Award for Meritorious Service and the Texas Leadership Award.

“I started my professional life at TWU 40 years ago as a nursing student and I am proud to work with the excellent faculty, staff and students as the university continues to grow and excel,” Dr. Gunning said.
