Nora White Receives Uhlir Fellowship


DENTON — Dr. Nora White, associate professor of reading at Texas Woman’s University, is the 2004 recipient of the G. Ann Uhlir Endowed Fellowship in Higher Education Administration.

Dr. White, who is speaker pro tem of the TWU Faculty Senate, will use the $2,000 award to locate and acquire materials on leadership, work with a leadership life coach and conduct in-depth discussions with successful higher education administrators.

The fellowship is designed to take beginning administrators, faculty or even students interested in administration and help them develop the leadership, management and interpersonal skills needed to be a highly qualified and successful academic administrator.

“I aspire to become a person whom others view as a leader — a person who understands how to work within models of power and influence to inspire, mentor, prioritize, delegate and lead with authenticity and dignity,” said Dr. White. “Ultimately, I hope that this journey will lead to promotion to challenging leadership roles in higher education administration at TWU.”

When Dr. Uhlir, founding dean of the TWU College of Health Sciences, reached retirement, she wanted to continue to make a meaningful contribution to the university community and in 1996 provided initial funding for the fellowship. “The fellowship at TWU was established to inspire people to be administrators in higher education. Outstanding faculty are important to a university, as are outstanding administrators who make things happen,” said Dr. Uhlir.

Dr. Uhlir envisions the program providing inspired leadership to university campuses.
