Dean Joyce Alexander announces her return to faculty

Texas A&M School of Education and Human Development Dean Joyce Alexander announced Monday she will be stepping down from her position on Aug. 31 to return to a faculty position.

Alexander assumed the role of dean on June 1, 2015. She is the sixth individual to hold the role in the college’s history. She also serves as the Reta Haynes Dean’s Endowed Chair and is a professor in the Department of Educational Psychology.

During her tenure as dean, Alexander navigated the college through the challenges of a global pandemic while continuing to build financial support for student scholarships, various programs and research.

“It is with mixed emotions that I step down but I have great confidence that we have individuals in every position throughout the college who are capable and committed to keeping this critical work moving forward,” Alexander said. “It’s been my absolute privilege to serve this college.”

The Office of the Provost will be accepting nominations for an interim dean followed by a formal search at a future date.
