Chancellor to speak at higher ed events

Texas Woman’s University Chancellor and President Carine M. Feyten will be speaking at two events focused on higher education, one on Wed., Aug. 5, the other on Thursday, Aug. 13. Both are free.

Feyten will be one of three speakers featured during D Magazine’s virtual lunch panel discussion on “The Business of Higher Education,” at noon, Wednesday, Aug. 5. Preregistration is required.

During the one-hour event on Zoom, Feyten will join Harry Dombroski, dean of UTA’s College of Business, and Joe May, Dallas College chancellor, in a conversation about how local institutions of higher learning are adapting to the COVID-19.

According to D Magazine, the session will cover questions such as:

  • What does the future hold for our local higher learning institutions, across degrees and levels?
  • How will the value of undergraduate education evolve as a result?
  • How are schools adapting to serve the many needs of students, and why and how can the business community support their efforts? 

TWU is a cosponsor of the event, which is free to participants. After registering, you will be sent a confirmation email with the Zoom details and password.


At the Aug. 13 Dallas Regional Chamber "State of Higher Ed" event, Feyten will join a panel that includes:

  • Harrison Keller, Texas Commissioner of Higher Education
  • Teik Lim, UTA's interim president
  • Joe May, Dallas College chancellor
  • Chris Turner, State Representative, District 101 and chair of the House Higher Education Committee

Registration is required.

At this event, Commissioner Keller will discuss workforce development and higher education policies expected in the upcoming Texas legislative session. Feyten and the other higher ed leaders will discuss higher ed innovation in the Dallas Region.
