Coleman A. Jennings is not only well known for his role in the classroom, but also for his role as the Department Chair.  Dr. Jennings served as the Chair of the Department of Theatre and Dance for 12 years, seeing the department and the University through a period of amazing growth.  In this section, we will have information about his role as an Arts Administrator and the milestones made as the department developed under his leadership.

 

Here is a video of one of his Administrative peers talking about his consistent concern for students and finding ways to think outside the box to improve teaching and learning at UT Austin.

“Through my years in this profession, I have learned that even more satisfying than creating the stories myself, is teaching others to do it.”
