Texas Woman’s University Chancellor Carine M. Feyten, Ph.D., has received the 2016 Chief Executive HR Champion Award from the College and University Professional Association for Human Resources (CUPA-HR). This is the nation’s top award recognizing university leaders for their support of human resources.
“I am so appreciative of this recognition, and I thank those who recognized our efforts here at Texas Woman’s University,” Feyten said. “This is such a distinctive honor and I’m especially proud because it reflects on our entire university community.”
Feyten added, “From the minute I stepped on this campus, I’ve emphasized the ‘triple bottom line’ approach in leading the university — People, Profit and Planet — with People coming first. If we nurture a culture that always considers individual well-being, the objectives we set for Profit and Planet will be much easier to reach. This also extends to our students who we want to empower to become thriving and engaged global citizens.”
Because of this recognition, CUPA-HR is making an $8,000 contribution, underwritten by Sibson Consulting, to a TWU fund of Feyten’s choice. Feyten has decided to apply the gift to the TWU Staff Council for professional development.
