Congratulations to Dr. Cary Wintz, TFA Board of Directors Member
Dear Dr. Cary Wintz:
Based upon recommendations from the Distinguished Professorship Ad Hoc Committee and Provost Sunny E. Ohia, I am very pleased to approve your appointment as a distinguished professor in the College of Liberal Arts and Behavioral Sciences.
Your portfolio clearly suggests that you have established a long record of exceptional scholarship, teaching, and service to the profession, the university, and the community. Both your external and internal letters of support are persuasive in that they demonstrate your national and international reputation as an outstanding scholar and teacher. You have made significant contributions to the body of knowledge in African American and Texas history. One reviewer notes that you are regarded as one of the foremost scholars in the are of the Harlem Renaissance and 20th Century African American history. Your reviewers, generally speaking, underscore the twenty books that you have published in your career, which has spanned forty plus years. I was pleased to see documentation that many of your students have gone on to earn Ph.D. degrees and to become stellar scholars because of your scholarship and mentorship.
