The Texas A&M Bush School of Government and Public Service Director of Extended Education Lisa Brown won the Texas Women in Higher Education’s (TWHE) Institutional Representative of the Year award. This award recognizes a member and her outstanding contributions to TWHE through fulfillment in her role of IR.

The award factors in how the recipient connects with women on her campus, enhances the profile of women, promotes relevant communications, and participates in and communicates with TWHE.

“I am truly honored by this award.  This award is especially meaningful to me because of Texas Women in Higher Education’s outstanding work developing women leaders in higher education across the state of Texas!  TWHE creates supportive networks in higher education for women’s leadership growth and success. We have many amazing and phenomenal women at Texas A&M University and across Texas who are leading the way in higher education—from new strategies to ensure student success to conducting impactful research that contributes to solving society’s challenges!  I look forward to continuing this effort and helping prepare the next generation of successful leaders,” Lisa Brown said about receiving the award.

The awards will be presented at the TWHE conference on April 7-9 in San Antonio.

“Congratulations to Lisa for receiving this prestigious award! It is an honor to work alongside someone as hardworking as Lisa at the Bush School,”
