Dr. Gary Stading has been named interim provost and vice president for Academic Affairs at Texas A&M University-Texarkana, effective July 15.

Dr. Stading, currently dean of the College of Business, will serve in the interim capacity while a search is conducted for a permanent provost and vice president for Academic Affairs to succeed Dr. Rosanne Stripling.

Dr. Stripling, who joined A&M-Texarkana in 2000 as a professor of Education, will return to the classroom this fall to become a founding professor in the new Doctor of Education in Education Leadership program.
Dr. Stading has served as dean of the College of Business since July of last year. Previously, he served on the faculty and as associate dean of the College of Business at the University of Houston Downtown.

Dr. Stading is a member of the Texarkana Chamber of Commerce economic development committee and military affairs initiative. He also has worked with Workforce Solutions of Northeast Texas and the city of Texarkana, Texas, on several grant initiatives.

“I am extremely pleased and honored to be a part of the A&M-Texarkana community,” Dr. Stading said. “The faculty and staff represent the highest ideals of academic standards. The students are hardworking and interested in attaining education to better their lives and the world in which we live. I hope I can provide servant leadership for the A&M-Texarkana faculty, staff, students and community partners that helps all of us expand upon our contributions to the world around us.”

Dr. David Reavis, associate professor of Management Information Systems and Management, has been named interim dean of the College of Business. Dr. Reavis has served on the faculty of A&M-Texarkana since 2001.
