UPDATE 09 July 2008: UT Arlington announces change in Honors College leadership
Dr. Farrar-Myers, who came to UT Arlington in 1998, coordinated the University’s Quality Enhancement Plan during the recent Southern Association of Colleges and Schools reaffirmation review process. She holds a bachelor’s degree in political science and public administration from Russell Sage College, a master’s degree in political science from the University of Illinois and a Ph.D. in political science from the University at Albany, State University of New York.
She specializes in the American presidency, presidential-congressional relations, separation of powers and campaign finance reform. She wrote Scripted for Change: The Institutionalization of the American Presidency (Texas A&M Press, 2007) and co-wrote two other books.
In 1997-98, Farrar-Myers served as an American Political Science Association congressional fellow. Her many honors include the 2001 UT Arlington Chancellor’s Council Award for Excellence in Teaching, the 2005 Arlington Star-Telegram Service Learning Award and the 2007 UT Arlington Honors College Distinguished Faculty Award.
“I am excited to collaborate with colleagues across the University to generate additional opportunities to enhance our Honors College students’ success,” she said.
