Dr. Yvonna S. Lincoln, Distinguished University Professor in the College of Education and Human Development, has been selected as the 2014 recipient of the Texas A&M Women Former Students’ Network (WFSN) Eminent Scholar Award.

Since 2009, the Women Former Students’ Network has joined with the President of Texas A&M University in recognizing extraordinary women faculty members for their outstanding research, scholarship and praiseworthy service to the University.

Dr. Fred Nafukho, professor and department head for the Educational Administration and Human Development department, spoke warmly of Lincoln.

“No other scholar would be more deserving to receive the TAMU Eminent Scholar Award. As a scholar, Dr. Lincoln is a critical, reflective, creative and deep thinker. Her research contributions have totally transformed the nature of social science scholarship as we know it today,” he said. “She has had tremendous scholarly accomplishments and with over 100,000 citations, she is one of the most cited scholars in the world. We are so fortunate and honored to have her as member of faculty in the Department of Educational Administration and Human Resource Development.”

Lincoln will receive significant recognition on campus and a $4,000 gift for her contributions as a model for all women.
