RESTINE NAMED DEAN OF COPE

Dr. Nan Restine has been named the dean of the College of Professional Education (COPE) at Texas Woman’s University. Dr. Restine previously served as interim dean of COPE, and as chair of the Department of Teacher Education. She will continue to serve in that role until a new chair is selected.

COPE includes the departments of family sciences, reading and teacher education, as well as the School of Library and Information Studies, the Office of Student Support Services and the Professional Development Center.

“I want COPE and TWU to be the place of choice,” Dr. Restine said.

“We have grown in many areas in a relatively short amount of time,” she said. “We need to be thoughtful about growth in our programs and our collaborative efforts with community colleges and other entities, while being mindful about our focus on faculty development.”

Dr. Restine received her bachelor of science degree in health, physical education and recreation from Eastern New Mexico University. She holds a master of arts in curriculum and instruction from New Mexico State University, and a specialist in education and a Ph.D. in educational administration and supervision from The University of New Mexico.

Prior to joining TWU in July 2004, she served as the associate dean of the College of Education at the University of Alabama; as interim associate dean in the College of Education and associate head of the School of Curriculum and Educational Leadership at Oklahoma State University; and as an assistant professor of educational leadership in the College of Education and Behavioral Sciences at Western Kentucky University. She also taught and coached for more than 15 years in public schools in Texas and New Mexico.

SANBORN RECEIVES TACSM HONOR AWARD

Dr. Charlotte (Barney) Sanborn, professor of kinesiology at Texas Woman’s University, recently received the 2007 Honor Award from the Texas Chapter of the American College of Sports Medicine (TACSM).

Since 1992, the TACSM has given the Honor Award to recognize an individual who has made outstanding contributions to exercise science and sports medicine while working in the state of Texas.

“It was truly an honor to receive the award and also humbling to be recognized by TACSM,” Dr. Sanborn said. “The Texas Chapter is one of the premiere chapters of ACSM and has a rich history of leaders in the field of sports medicine.”

Dr. Sanborn conducts research on childhood obesity, women’s health, osteoporosis and athletic amenorrhea. She has taught at TWU for almost 20 years and currently serves as the chair of the TWU Kinesiology Department. She is active in numerous professional organizations and served as the research coordinator for the TWU Growing with EASE (Eating, Activity, Self-Esteem) — a transdisciplinary team of researchers/educators devoted to the prevention or amelioration of childhood obesity.

TACSM is a regional chapter of the American College of Sports Medicine (ACSM). ACSM is a multi-disciplinary professional and scientific society dedicated to the generation and dissemination of knowledge concerning the motivations, responses, adaptations and health aspects of persons engaged in sport and exercise. The largest sports medicine and exercise science organization in the world, ACSM has more than 20,000 members worldwide. For more information about the TACSM, visit www.tacsm.org.
