Texas Woman’s University has been buzzing since July 2014, with the announcement of a new president and chancellor — only the second in the university’s history. Recently supporters and students headed to TWU’s T. Boone Pickens Institute of Health Sciences Dallas Center to give Carine M. Feyton, Ph.D., a proper Big D welcome.

Dr. Feyten, a native of Belgium, is an internationally recognized consultant, speaker and scholar in the field of language learning, teaching methodologies and the integration of technology in education. She is fluent in five languages and previously served as dean of the College of Education, Health and Society at Miami University in Oxford, Ohio. She is succeeding Ann Stuart, who was there for 14 years.

TWU is among the nation’s leading providers of nurses and other healthcare professionals, as well as a top producer of occupational therapists. Many of these students were on hand to visit with Feyten at the celebration and formally welcome her into the TWU family.

Dr. Stephen Mansfield, chairman of the board of directors for the Dallas Regional Chamber of Commerce and president and CEO of the Dallas Methodist Health System, explained why Feyten was the perfect person for the job before introducing her.

“The City of Dallas — especially its renowned medical community — has been a critical partner in TWU’s success for more than 50 years,” Feyten said. “I am excited about this opportunity to introduce myself to Dallas and for us to work together for a strong future that benefits the university, the medical community and the city.”

Among those on the welcoming committee: Steve Love, Dr. Perrie Adams, Virginia Chandler Dykes, Patricia Crocker, Alred Rivas, Susan Stout and Heather Norris.
