Dr. Jim Alexander retired this summer after 27 years at Texas Woman’s University. For 23 of those years he was Chair of the Department of History and Government bringing with him his gift for good-natured leadership and his instinct for justice and integrity.
Jim’s leadership, commitment, and good humor have built an uncommon academic department fortified by the mutual respect and common purpose he fostered. Jim will keep his office on campus and continues to teach his signature Constitutional Law and other courses.
Those who have enjoyed Jim’s classroom lectures or his comments in front of the elevator on the 6th floor are constantly impressed with his keen political insights. These come from his education and scholarship, but also from his observations during many years of service to the community through practical politics. He continues to serve on Denton Independent School District Board of Trustees.
Continuing work as Project Director for Law Enforcement Management Institute of Texas (LEMIT) is opening new national and international opportunities for Jim that he now has more time to pursue. His colleagues will sorely miss his 6th floor presence, but understand his desire to spend more time with his wife Mona and son Jason, and, more to the point…..golf.
