WEEA Grantee Named 2002 Texas State Professor of the Year
Dr. Josefina Tinajero, Professor of Teacher Education at the University of Texas at El Paso, has been named the 2002 Texas State Professor of the Year by the Carnegie Foundation. State Professors of the Year are given this award in recognition of their dedication to teaching, commitment to students, and innovative instructional methods. Dr. Tinajero participated in the awards ceremony at the White House on November 21, 2002.
As a WEEA grantee, Dr. Tinajero directs the Educational Enhancement for Mothers and Daughters Program at the University of Texas--El Paso. This WEEA project addresses two major barriers to Latinas' participation in higher education: low educational and career expectations of girls and their parents, and lack of knowledge about how to prepare for, finance, and succeed in college. Since 1986, the project has worked with over 3,000 mothers and daughters. Project staff has responded to requests throughout the country from people interested in using their program model to establish similar programs. As the program founder, Dr. Tinajero has built lasting partnerships with six such replicated programs in Texas and California.
Dr. Tinajero was selected by the Carnegie Foundation as the 2002 Texas State Professor of the Year based on four criteria: (1) impact on and involvement with undergraduate students, (2) scholarly approach to teaching and learning, (3) contributions to undergraduate education within the institution and community, and (4) support from colleagues and students.
