Bezos Academy groundbreaking set for April 25

Chancellor Feyten announced the groundbreaking for the Denton campus Bezos Academy will take place at 11 a.m. on April 25 at 1820 Frame Street.

"I look forward to this new partnership between Texas Woman’s, the City of Denton, and the Bezos Academy," Feyten said. "We will continue pioneering our core values of opportunity and excellence for our students and surrounding communities."

This long-awaited project supports the multifaceted work of the TWU strategic plan’s Family Matters initiative, co-led by Catherine Dutton, PhD, and Amy O’Keefe.

Texas Woman’s has long pioneered success for students with children. Since 2017, the Texas State Department of Health and Human Services has recognized Texas Woman’s as a mother-friendly worksite, and since 2018, TWU has earned the agency’s silver-level designation.

For those wanting to attend, use the registration link. If you wish to walk about a half mile to the groundbreaking from the center of campus, avoid University Drive by walking north on Bell Avenue and then taking a right on Woodland Street.
