Dr. Stacey G. Parham named VP for Academic Affairs

Dr. Stacey Parham, Professor of English and Interim Academic Dean, has been named Vice President for Academic Affairs at Judson College.

“Dr. Parham’s presence on the President’s Cabinet has been invaluable during the tumultuous days of COVID-19 adjustments.  She is highly valued by her peers on the Cabinet and commands the respect of the faculty, both personally and professionally,” said W. Mark Tew, President, in an announcement.

A summa cum laude graduate, Parham holds B.A. and M.A. degrees in English from Mississippi College and the Ph.D. in English from the University of Alabama. While at the University of Alabama, Parham received the coveted Boone Teaching Fellowship and was honored with the recognition of Outstanding Teaching by a Doctoral Student.

Parham joined the Judson faculty in 2010 and, in addition to her teaching roles, has served as Head of the English Department, Chair of the Humanities & Fine Arts Division, Associate Dean for Curriculum and Instruction, and, most recently, Interim Academic Dean. In 2011 and 2016 Parham received Judson’s Lula and Alton Holley Award for Excellence in Classroom Teaching.  In 2017 Parham received the Mary Gibson Thompson Faculty Award, determined by a vote of graduating seniors.

“God has brought Dr. Parham to Judson for exactly these days,” said Tew. “Her grasp of academic leadership is unparalleled and her dynamic and genuine faith obviously permeates her every decision.  I can think of no one better than Dr. Parham to lead the college’s faculty in delivering a career-shaping curriculum from a biblically-informed Christian worldview.”
