KINGSVILLE (May 18, 2023) — Dr. Jingbo Liu, a professor in the chemistry department at Texas A&M University-Kingsville, was recently given the Woman of the Year Award from the Texas Diversity Council. She received the award at the Central Texas Women in Leadership Symposium held at University of Texas at Austin School of Law.


“This award reflects team work and I am the lucky one to stand on their shoulders,” Liu said. “Any award is an effective catalyst that inspires me to work more diligently to serve my community at full capacity.


“The honor aims to recognize professionals for their contribution to the growth of humanity in the community and societies. It will increase the visibility of the department and of Texas A&M-Kingsville,” Liu added. “This also will showcase the excellence achieved by faculty members from a Hispanic-Serving Institution (HIS) and a Primarily Undergraduate Institution (PUI). This award will encourage educators from HSIs and PUIs to continue making contributions in the advancement of evidence-based best practices in higher education to empower the next generations.”


“This is an outstanding honor for Dr. Liu,” said Dr. Dolores Guerrero, dean of the College of Arts and Sciences. “It reflects on her hard work and her purpose to make a difference in her community. I am very proud for her accomplishments and her commitment to passing it forward and recognizing others.


“I hope that the college and I have been a source of support and encouragement for her. It is exciting to see our faculty succeed and shine in their talents and excellence,” Guerrero added.
