Stanley To Hold Ruth Harrington Chair

Dr. Christine Stanley’s dedication to enhancing education in our society is getting another boost. Stanley will be named the new holder of the Ruth Harrington Chair in Educational Leadership on June 1.

Stanley is a professor of higher education administration in the Department of Educational Administration and Human Resource Development. She is also Vice President and Associate Provost for Diversity Emerita.

“I am excited, deeply honored and humbled to have been appointed the next holder of the Ruth Harrington Chair in Educational Leadership. I am in awe to follow chair holders Distinguished Professor, Yvonna Lincoln and former Dean of the College, Dean Corrigan,” said Stanley. “I read the expectations that come with this endowed chair, and I hope to use my research, teaching and other scholarly activities to advance and enrich leadership and professional development opportunities for faculty, students and staff in the department.”

The Ruth Harrington Chair in Educational Leadership is funded by generous donations from the Ed Rachal Foundation. The name honors a former “First Lady of Texas A&M,” Ruth Harrington, whose husband once served as president of the university.

Funds from endowed chairs support programs and promote teaching, research and service activities of the chair holder.

This chair was previously held by Dean Dean Corrigan from 1991-2001 and Dr. Yvonna S. Lincoln from 2001-2019.
