LUBBOCK – Dr. Bill Dean, associate dean for student affairs in the Texas Tech University College of Mass Communications, was named the 2005 distinguished professor by the university’s chapter of National Society of Collegiate Scholars. Dean was given the distinction during the Aug. 29 induction of new members to the society.
Dean also serves as the executive vice president of the Texas Tech Alumni Association. He has received many awards, including the President’s Teaching Award for Excellence in 1995 and was voted best instructor at Tech from 1993 to 2003.
“I feel very honored to be given this award by a student organization. This organization represents the very best students, academically speaking, at Texas Tech University so that makes it very special for me,” Dean said.
The National Society of Collegiate Scholars is an organization that gives to the community through service. The Texas Tech chapter requires a 3.5 g.p.a. for membership.
