Brooke E. Blevins, Ph.D., associate professor of social studies education and chair of the Department of Curriculum & Instruction in the Baylor University School of Education, has been named The Conwell G. Strickland Endowed Chair in Education.
Blevins is only the third faculty member to hold The Strickland Chair, following recently retired professor Larry Browning, Ed.D. (appointed in 2012), and the inaugural holder, the late Fred. K. Curtis, Ed.D. (1985).
Highly respected as an exemplary teacher/scholar and a recognized leader in the field of civics education, Blevins’ appointment to the endowed chair places her in the company of Baylor’s most revered faculty. Colleagues describe Blevins as a fully engaged teaching scholar who empowers her students to become transformative and as a leader who serves through a philosophy grounded in care and demonstrated in collaboration.
