We are thrilled to announce that Dr. Alfredo Quiñones-Hinojosa (Dr. Q) will be the recipient of the 2022 Austin College Posey Leadership Award and our very first Posey Leader-in-Residence. In advance of the award events, Dr. Q will join faculty, staff, and students in four virtual Zoom sessions throughout the year November through March. Hosted by our faculty, the sessions will address four categories: his work, his research, his career, and his life story.
On April 14, Dr. Q will be on campus in-person to receive the 2022 Austin College Posey Leadership Award in Wynne Chapel’s Grum Sanctuary at an 11:00 a.m. convocation open to students, faculty, staff, alumni, and invited guests.
Dr. Q will be joining us virtually for a series of conversations on different topics. These are designed for students so that you can speak with him directly, ask questions, and get to know Dr. Q in advance of his campus visit in April.
