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.

    Dr. Alexander,

    You are wonderful professor, without a doubt one of the best! Your words of wisdom and encouragement have meant the world to me.

    Gracias,
    Eliza

  2. Frank Mayhew Says:

    Dr. Alexander,

    You are much too young to retire … in fact I think we should both agree that you won’t “hang it up” until I do.
    Seriously, I don’t have th words to tell you how much I appreciate all that you have done for me. You have been instrumental in allowing me to fulfill a long-time dream … to teach at the collegiate level.

  3. Brandi Singh Says:

    Dr. Alexander,
    I will miss your classes and your true interest in the subject that we discuss in class, whatever that may be. You are then one that kept me here at TWU when I felt I wasn’t up to snuff with others. Thanks for being a free ear and someone to truly look up to. We will miss you!

    Sincerely,
    Brandi Singh


  4. Dr. Alexander, I was in the graduating class of Dec, 1985. I am a resident of Wichita Falls, TX. Congratulations on your retirement! Although I know you’re excited, I can say there are students who will lose out on gaining knowledge from a great Professor. I want to express how much I enjoyed your classes and having you as a Professor. It makes the class so much more enjoyable when one has a love of the subject, interesting teaching methods and a sense of humor. I wish you the best in retirement and thank you for the knowledge you shared with students like myself and others at TWU.

  5. Judy Horton Says:

    Dear Dr. Alexander,

    I have so many happy memories of my days at TWU. I really didn’t turn out to be what I thought I would but have been very happy being a librarian and particularly happy as a branch manager here in Waco. You were always so encouraging and such a booster to your students. You were so kind even when I was on the opposing side in politics. You were even nice when I goaded you about Reagan. (That’s been awhile, HA)

    Best of everything to you and your family and ENJOY your retirement. I’ll probably die with my boots on here in the heart of good old Texas.

  6. Jackie Clanton Says:

    Dr. Jim retiring???? It can’t be!

    I have enjoyed knowing you both as my advisor and as a friend. I know Randy will be hooking up with you to play golf – LOL!

    Thank you for all you have done and all you have meant to me and to countless other alums from TWU. You are a great person and I wish nothing but the best for you – enjoy your retirement!

  7. Teresa Galinari Crumpton Says:

    Dr. Alexander,

    Thank you so much for all you did, you were an inspiration to me.

    Congraduations and enjoy your retirement.

  8. Robin Orlowski Says:

    Dr. Alexander

    I loved your lectures and your passion for a more fair world. I continue to do well in Austin and have just finished my early voting today. I remain active in my community–encouraging others through personal example. You were one of many people at the department and on the campus who inspired me. Best wishes always!

    Robin

  9. Elizabeth Trosper Says:

    Dear Dr. Alexander,

    As a professor, you brought such joy to particularly complex and challenging course matter. I still use lessons learned in Con Law to this day. I will never forget your class and its significance. I will always think of your classroom when I think of the historic changes taking place on the Supreme Court during that time. I hope that you take into retirement a knowledge of how much you’ve inspired every group of young students under your direction at TWU.

    Blessings to you and yours.

    Elizabeth

  10. Rachel Says:

    Dr. Alexander,

    I remember meeting you for the first time when I was deciding whether or not to get my degree in Government. After taking your Con. Law I class, I was hooked. You had such a passion and love of the law and seeing justice through. You have made an everlasting impact on me and I thank you for that. Thank you again for guiding me in my education which effects so many facets of my life.

    Enjoy this time with your family, and thank you again for all your hard-work and devotion.

    Rachel

  11. Crystal Wright Says:

    Dr. Alexander,

    Words cannot express the gratitude I feel toward you and TWU. When a temporary position came available, you gave me a chance and allowed me to work for TWU for eight years. Those years were some of the most fullfilling in my career. You were always generous with your time and helpful with your advice. The 6th floor has relied on you for so long for your leadership,insight, and wonderful tact! I hope you enjoy having a bit more time off to spend with your family, but your TWU family, your students, and I will miss seeing you on a regular basis.

  12. Joanie Housewright Says:

    Dear Dr. Alexander,

    In this case, retirement is truely a relative term, as I cannot imagine that you will ever really retire from public service and education! I, as everyone else, am extremely grateful that I have had the opportunity to benefit from your wisdom and guidance and will always appreciate your support in my academic and professional pursuits, and for providing me the opportunity to teach.

    I’m so glad that you chose to come to TWU, but I shall always regret that you didn’t get here sooner!

    With warmest regards,

    Joanie, Class of’81

  13. Monica Haule Says:

    Dr. Alexander,

    I can’t believe you have retired! You were, by far, one of the best teachers I have ever had in my entire life! I loved seeing your face light up every time someone asked a question about government and I will miss your encouragement to stay focused and do my best in school. You will be sorely missed.

  14. Bonnie Pattillo Says:

    Dr. Dr. Alexander,

    As a graduate of the class of 1987, I will always have a warm place in my heart for TWU. I was one of the non-traditional (= older) students on campus. It was tough returning to education after being in the work force for quite some time, but I was made to believe that I could accomplish whatever I put my mind to. Dr. Alexander, you were terrific. I will never forget your words to me as I was nearing my graduation date with a degree in Government with an emphasis in Paralegal Studies. You said, “You should go on to law school, because I believe you’ll have a difficult time taking orders from others.” Was that a compliment or just a statement of my hard headedness? Well, I didn’t go to law school, but in fact went on to work as a paralegal, (corporate and personal injury law in Ohio and Indiana) for 10 years. I married and left the great state of Texas and have been gone ever since. My life has been in Carmel, IN for the past 15 years, and I am now doing the most important job on earth – being a mom and wife.

    I am thrilled for you. You look absolutely marvelous!!

    P.S. Dr. Presnall, It was great to hear your voice on my answering machine.

    With best wishes for your next venture,

    Bonnie Pattillo-Lewis

  15. Hilda Alcerreca Says:

    Dr. Alexander,

    I was a graduated with an MA in government in 1989. I’ll always be grateful for your help in helping me get my requirements not only for my master’s program but also the courses that I needed to get a social studies composite for my teachers certification. I was in a jam because I had to get all of this done within 3 years or my school district would not renew my contract and you made it work. I’ll always be grateful for the professional way that you, the history/government department and Texas Woman’s University treated me and cared about my situation. I learned so much from you and the staff in the history/government department. As of this day, I am still working for the same school district, Highland Park High School, that I started with and I am currently teaching Above Placement Government and Above Placement Comparative government. It was teachers like you that helped me gain the love that I currently have for politics and help me to continue learning and passing on my love of politics.

    Good luck in your next journey.

    Hilda Alcerreca

  16. Angela Robersin Says:

    Dr. Alexander:

    I am still in shock in learning of your retirement. I am also excited for you and what the next phase of life has in store for you. You were very instrumental in my getting into the masters government program and my graduation in 2005. You were always available to provide encouraging words and sound advice. I think of those conversations regularly as I once again ponder over where my professional and academic future will guide me. I truly hope our paths will cross again, because your are one of the best professors/advisors one could have. Thank you for all you have done for me and other students who were fortunate to have met you. Bless you and continued success.

    Sincerely,
    Angela Roberson

  17. Alisa Hooey Says:

    Dr. Alexander,

    I am so sad to hear that you are leaving TWU. However, I am grateful to have had you as a teacher and advisor. You never doubted me and for that I have continued on with my studies. I am currently attending Vermont Law School. Your encouragement gave me the strength to go on with my education. I will always keep your wonderful smile with me as a remembrance of a man that exemplifies courage and great knowledge.

    Thank you and take care of yourself,
    Alisa Hooey


  18. Dr. A –

    I left TWU neither a Democrat nor a Rotarian – but you’ve made me a smarter Republican and Kiwanian! Enjoy the life of retirement – you deserve it.

    Wishing you only the best-
    Elizabeth Roy Tsui, class of 2003

  19. Yvonne Hoffchen Says:

    Dr. Alexander,

    I thank you for the positive impact that you made in my life. You are a true inspiration to me. You are so much more than a great professor…but also a great friend.

    I wish you the best!
    Yvonne Hoffchen

  20. Vicki Byrd Says:

    Dr. Alexander,

    You were my advisor in 1985 and I had a situation that I needed to notify you about. After I blabbed and cried to you about my mistake, you calmly suggested that I should not ever put myself in that position again. (Subsequently she made a B and I made a D on that paper!) Along with other comments and your encouragement that day really set me on a path to work on and be dedicated to my own personal achievements. I want you to know that I have really been working on that. From a student to a TWU Dispatcher, to a TWU Police Officer and now TWU Safety Coordinator and assistant to the Risk Manager. I thank you for that wisdom.

    Stay Safe
    Vicki Byrd
    TWU Safety Coordinator

  21. Carrie Pruett-Wigington Says:

    Dr. Alexander,
    Thank you so much for all of the wonderful advice! I am so thankful that you were my advisor. You didn’t just advise – you really cared. I miss sending messages between you and my grandpa! Have fun!!

  22. Dr. Susan Ritter Says:

    Dr. Alexander,

    Congratulations on your retirement! Twenty seven years ago you did not know quite what to do with your first graduate with an emphasis in criminal justice but you were always kind and interested when I would stop in to visit. I attribute much of my own success to the wonderful education I received at TWU. Have a great rest of your life!

  23. Stephanie Fuller Says:

    Dr. Alexander,

    I am happy that you will all the time in the world to look at CNN World News, However, I am so saddened to hear that you retired!!

    It wasn’t until I took your Constitutional Law Class (I and II)that I found out how patriotic I truly am. Since then, I have developed a sense of “duty” when it comes to the political process. I owe that to you.

    Good luck with all of your endeavors and know that you will be missed!

  24. Jes Peel Says:

    Dr. Alexander,
    I wanted to take a moment and express my deepest appreciation and respect for you and the education you provided to me. I had many excellent professors who taught me, not only information, but also the value of learning; however, the knowledge you extended to me was more than facts or figures. Yes, I learned about The constitution and its infinite wonder, but I learned much about myself as well. I look at the world around me with a prospective you instilled through your time and effort as an educator, a community member, a mentor, and a friend. My time in your classroom, which seemed to pour out to the stairs, the foyer, the walkway to the CFO building, and beyond is greatly cherished. I will always remember my time at TWU fondly… but ultimately I wanted you to know the positive impact you made for this student. Because of you I will forever be a seeker of knowledge and a passionate student, as I will always endeavor to make you proud.

    Thank You Always,

  26. Alisha Mills Says:

    Dr. Alexander, is such a wonderful man.He really encouraged me to strive to achieve high goals and never settle for less. I am an alumni and I will take his wisdom and dedication with me and pass it on to my children so that they may achieve and become successful as Dr.Alexnader taught me.

    I love you and I wish you the best in everything you do.

  27. Dave Bugg Says:

    Dr. Alexander,

    You shared with me your vision of public service, leadership and so many stories about the criminal justice environment in Texas. I am a better person for all of your wisdom. You’re also a fine golf teacher. I hope that without me as your travel partner you’ll have better luck enjoying your time with Mona as you enjoy your retirement.

    Best wishes from Southern Canada.

  28. Timothy Hoye Says:

    Jim,
    You were a gifted Chair and will be greatly missed. Please allow me to repeat here what I wrote in the letter in support of your emeritus application. That is, you brought to life that ancient, classic concept of leadership as spoudaious, the “great-souled” one who deservedly speaks for the community. So glad you will still be “speaking” from up on the eleventh floor! Very best wishes on the future course, and courses (golf), of your not so “retired” life.
    Tim Hoye

  29. Martina Will de Chaparro Says:

    Jim, the above comments – and those sure to follow – demonstrate that your work (always with a smile, even when delivering news of new rubrics and requirements), has been of the greatest success…the garden you planted in your classes continues to thrive…what greater reward can there be for a teacher? We will miss you, even if you’re only semi-retired.

    Martina

    “Success:
    To laugh often and much;
    To win the respect of intelligent people and the affection of children;
    To earn the appreciation of honest critics and endure the betrayal of false friends;
    To appreciate beauty, to find the best in others;
    To leave the world a bit better, whether by a healthy child, a garden patch or a redeemed social condition;
    To know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived.
    This is to have succeeded.” – Bessie Stanley

  30. Joe Ialenti Says:

    Jim:

    Congrats on your retirement. I hope you’ll remain on the DISD Board and active in the community.

    Stay in touch.

  31. Lisa Gullikson Price Says:

    Congratulations on your retirement! I remember when you joined our CJ family at TWU. You were a very welcome addition to an already great group of instructors. If I remember correctly, you were the driving force establishing our charter Alpha Phi Sigma. You graciously hosted a party at your home, inviting all of your students.
    I credit my time at TWU for empowering me to pursue my career in law enforcement. I’m a lieutenant for a city in Washington state and have been with the same department for over 20 years. I started this career dispatching at TWU PD and going on to be a police office for them for two years in the early 80’s.
    Again, congrats! The comments people made above give insight to the impact you have had- very impressive!

  32. Patsy M. Floyd Says:

    Dr. Alexander,

    Congratulations on your retirement from TWU. You have had a long and distinguished career in Education and Politics. I feel a little old as I write this because I can remember the day that you arrived at the History and Government Department.

    Thank you for encouraging me to go after some of my goals. I went on to spend 31 years in the Army and retired in 2005 with the rank of Colonel and was awarded a Legion of Merit for my service.
    I am called often and asked to return but as of yet, have not done so.

    Today, I work as a Professor of Law, Business, and Political Science at a University in Virginia.

    I am planning on returning to Texas in a year to run for Congress. I spent 15 years on the Hill in an Army unit that I eventually ended up commanding.

    Again, congratulations on your retirement and
    best of luck to you and your family on your future
    endeavors.

  33. Deborah Baldwin Says:

    Dr. A,

    I always loved to “Agree to Disagree” with you. I learned so much from you and enjoyed your classes immensely. I am sorry to hear of your retirement as you are much too young to retire and many future students at TWU won’t gain from the knowledge you have shared with so many of us that have had the pleasure of having you as a Professor. I hope you enjoy your retirement and get to do all of the things you never got to do while teaching all these years. You will be sorely missed by all those still studying at TWU and all us Alumni! GOD Bless You in your future endeavors as well as relax and kick up your heels for while!

    Sincerely & Affectionately,

  34. Sandra Shew Campbell Says:

    Dr. Alexander,

    I completed my MA in Government in 1986. I spent 20 years as an Advanced Placement Government teacher in public school and five years as an Assistant Dean of The Honors College at The University of Texas at Arlington. You and the faculty of TWU were ever present in my teaching and in various leadership positions I held. I cannot imagine receiving better mentoring and academic enhancement at any university in the world. You, Dr. Presnall and many others helped me become the best educator that I could be. Your advice and counsel through my thesis were indispensable. I will forever be grateful that I chose to enroll in the MA program in Government at TWU. The program changed my academic life and outlook more than I can ever articulate. Thanks for your energy, your expectation of academic excellence and for helping to bring extraordinary faculty to an amazing institution.

    I know that you will be sorely missed and I regret for each incoming new student that they will not have the opportunity to know you. It is their loss. Good luck to you in your retirement and thanks so much for your continued service to the citizens of Denton. What an amazing leader you have been!

    Like many of us I want to stop and say thank you Dr. A. As my advisor you guided me through a few tough decisions during the past several years. Each time a speak with you I came away inspired and feeling more confident in my self. You along with several other professors in this department have helped to me to expand and grow more than I thought possible.
    I wish you good luck in your new endeavors. You will be missed but not forgotten. I don’t think any of us will ever forget to “agree to disagree agreeably.” I enjoyed and learned so much from your classes and your wisdom.

    thank you

    Dr. Alexander:

    Congratulations upon your retirement! Are you really retired, is the question? Perhaps you can join us in raising funds, especially Planned Gifts, for TWU. Oh, I know, you’ll have too many other great things to do now that you’re retired.

    It has always been an honor to know you, to have graduated as a Government major under your direction, and to work with you to enhance TWU’s efforts, especially in the Department of History and Government. You have and continue to make all the difference in the world to TWU, its students, faculty and staff, the Denton Community, and all facets of government local, state, and national. I wish you the very best in your retirement to . . . .

    Dr. Alexander,

    As my graduate advisor for the past year and a half, you have made my grad school career challenging, informative and something I looked forward to everyday. Whenever I felt lost on my path to graduation, you provided me with advice that helped me get back on track. I am so thankful for your presence in my grad school career and I appreciate all the time and help that you have given me. I will miss the opportunity to learn from you. You are a wonderful teacher!

    Thank you for everything,
    Catherine Lee

    P.S. My professional paper outline is being worked on and I promise to get it to you by our agreed upon deadline! :)

  42. Hollie Bartlett Dawson Says:

    Dr. A,

    I guess I should spill the beans. Behind your back, I have an affectionate nickname for you. It is “Big Jim”. I refer to you as “Big Jim” to most everyone except you. Point being, Dr. A., I could not have made it this far in school without you. You are the main reason why I was able to make it thus far, because you did everything that you could to ensure my insurance coverage and my safe and healthy return to the department. I came back with flying colors, and you encouraged me during every step of the way. I proved that I was serious about school, and you applauded that to me as well. Then you were kind enough to hire me on as a graduate assistant repeatedly. Thank you so much for all the sacrifices you have made for me. Thank you for believing in me even still. And thank you (along with my other outstanding profs), for helping me find my wonderful husband within the department. Most of all, thank you for instilling within me the utmost of all undergraduate Constitutional Law educations. I hope that I have and will continue to make you proud, as you have helped me feel such a part of and subscribe to the notion of our History and Government Department as a family. Knock ’em dead, Big Jim! All my love and sincerest regards, Hollie Dawson

  43. DeAnna Taylor Says:

    Dr. Alexander,

    Congratulations on your retirement. You are so deserving. As an undergraduate in Government I remember your passion in Con Law. You taught me a lot then and now as a graduate student. Thank you so much for being an approachable professor, lending an ear and giving good advise. I have truly enjoyed my classes with you and hope to have more before I graduate in May 2009.

    I so appreciate your forwardness and words of encouragement. You have inspired me to set the “bar” higher and have given me the encouragement I to achieve my academic goals.

    Thanks so much!!! Enjoy your retirement.

    Dear Jim:
    The picture of the CAS of 1989 is now completely obsolete – the last of the old guard has handed over the reign of to a new generation.
    I remember fondly the battles we have fought together – in what we thought made sense at the time. You have outlasted me in the office – now I challenge you to do the same in retirement!

    Dr. Alexander,
    I wish you all the best in retirement. I was truly blessed to have been a student and work for such a professional and wonderful human being! Thank you for one of the best courses…Constitutional Law…I still use your model of trusteeship theory for government in my classes. You were a wonderful mentor and instrumental in my acquisition of my current full-time position. Much blessings and happiness.

    Sincerely,
    Liz Nichols class of 1995 & 1999

  46. Melodie Pickett Says:

    Dr. Alexander,

    You inspire me! I am quite certain that I would not have decided to fast forward through the remainder of my undergraduate study and begin working toward a masters (and eventual doctorate) without experiencing your passion for politics and constitutional law. Though I had dabbled with education classes many years ago, the idea of teaching was not appealing in any way UNTIL I took Constitutional Law. I finally had an example of a wonderful professor who inspired me. You made me want to share my same passion for government and public policy in the way that you do. So, my goal is to follow your example, which is a rather monumental task! Thanks for your guidance, inspiration, and those wonderful political and policy discussions.

    Sincerely,
    Melodie M. Pickett

  47. Veronica Cole Says:

    Dr. Alexander,

    When I first came to TWU, I was pursuing a career in the field of psychology, but after taking your Constitutional law course I realized that my passion was in the field of government. You have been my guide since day one at TWU and I have really enjoyed our journey together and I was sad to hear that you had retired. I hope you enjoy the extra free time and I wish success on your new endeavers (I know there are going to be many).

    Congragulations. I was honored to be taught by you and to briefly work with you and for you. Thank you for that opportunity. You have been an inspiration not only to myself but to many, we appreciate you. I wish you the very best.
