Dr. William WoodsWilliam Woods is new Schreiner liberal arts dean

Dr. Mike Looney, Schreiner University provost and vice president of academic affairs, has announced that Dr. William Woods will become the new dean of the school of liberal arts for a three-year term. Dr. Woods replaces Dr. John Huddleston, who is stepping down after six years in the position.

“Dr. William Woods has been at Schreiner University since 1998 in our English department,” Dr. Looney said. “He has served as chair of the English department for four years, and he was the unanimous nomination of the School of Liberal Arts to become their next dean.”

Dr. Woods, professor of English and communications, was honored last year with two teaching awards: the Margaret Hosler Award for Excellence in Teaching and the Harriet Garrett Award for Excellence in teaching. Students determine both awards.     

"This is such a wonderful opportunity, and I'm delighted my colleagues nominated me for the job and Dr. Looney and President Summerlin approved that nomination,” said Dr. Woods. “I'm very fortunate to love the work I do for the university and to work with such outstanding faculty colleagues. Schreiner University was first and foremost a liberal arts college, and I see good things for my division as we continue to grow, to uphold those fine liberal arts traditions.”
