“I look forward to serving as our chief brand ambassador in Dallas.”

.…on taking up her post as the inaugural president of TWU Dallas, via the Dallas Regional Chamber.

Christopher has held key fundraising and relationship building posts over the past 25 years at Communities Foundation of Texas, The Dallas Morning News, and WFAA, and is the the former chair of the Dallas Regional Chamber’s Leadership Dallas Alumni.

On February 1, she became the inaugural president of TWU’s Dallas campus, the T. Boone Pickens Institute of Health Sciences-Dallas Center, located in an eight-story, 190,000-square-foot building in the heart of the Southwestern Medical District.

“At TWU, our enrollment is 90% women, and we believe that when you educate a woman, you empower the world,” Christopher said in a recent DRC post.

TWU’s Dallas campus houses the Houston J. and Florence A. Doswell College of Nursing, the TWU Stroke Center-Dallas, and the university’s physical therapy, occupational therapy, and health care administration and business programs.

“When students complete a degree program, their life trajectory changes, not just financially,” Christopher said in the DRC post. “Having a college education and viable career options also changes the prospects for that person’s children and grandchildren. This is particularly true for students of color, and we’re very proud that the demographics of our students on all TWU campuses mirror those of the communities we serve.”

Christopher aims to help TWU’s Dallas campus become more involved with the Dallas business community. She also said her campus is partnering on collaborative efforts like Dallas County Promise and the Commit Partnership, which strive to meet workforce needs by boosting the number of college-educated adults in the Dallas region.

“As we look to grow or expand programs, we’ll need to work closely with business leaders to help us better understand workforce gaps and opportunities for TWU to help fill those needs,” she said in the DRC post. “To launch new programs in Dallas, we’ll need the business community to support us as thought partners and allies of our mission and, of course, to hire TWU graduates.”
