Stanley named Regents Professor
Dr. Christine Stanley, professor of higher education and the holder of the Ruth Harrington Endowed Chair in Educational Leadership, has been named Regents Professor by the Texas A&M University System.
The Regents Award is the highest honor bestowed by the Texas A&M System on faculty and professional staff. It is given in recognition of achievements that have had an impact on, and beyond, the recipient’s institution or agency as well as to state, national and international levels.
Stanley is a faculty member in the Department of Educational Administration and Human Resource Development. She joined the faculty in 1999 and has held various roles since then, including Executive Associate Dean for Faculty Affairs in the college and Vice President and Associate Provost for Diversity for the university.
“I am incredibly humbled by this award,” Stanley said. “It represents the dedication, trust and commitment of students, mentors, colleagues and administrators whom I have had the privilege of learning from over my career. They have taught me the value and meaning of serving one’s profession and conducting research that impacts not only higher education but the human condition in our society and world. As the Ubuntu philosophy says, ‘I am because we are.’”
To become a Regents Professor, faculty must sustain a record of superior performance in teaching, research and service. To date, 268 A&M system faculty members have been recognized with the Regents Professor Award. Only three other faculty in the college have ever received this honor.
“I cannot express the degree to which Dr. Stanley’s contributions across these areas have displayed exceptional scholarly qualities and have demonstrated her unwavering commitment to advancing the social good through her work,” said Dr. Joyce Alexander, Dean of the College of Education and Human Development.
Stanley will be honored at a ceremony in spring 2021.
