Board of Visitors

A headshot of Elizabeth Jenswold, Schieffer College alumna and recently announced chair of the Board of Visitors.As a Communications graduate from the Class of 1989, I am incredibly honored to serve as the current Chair of the Bob Schieffer College of Communication Board of Visitors. My TCU degree set me up for a global executive career in financial services, consulting and non-profit. Additionally, TCU sparked my passions for a lifetime of learning, cultures, people, and living a life with a servant’s heart. It is rewarding to partner with Dean Bunton and the Board of Visitors to serve our students, professors and community.

We have entered an era that is full of new challenges and new possibilities. Entire industries are being built, data and technology have taken front-stage, and we are uniquely positioned to create a future where dignity, respect and equality can be the underpinnings for our decisions and actions. The Bob Schieffer College of Communication has always been on the forefront of culture and I look forward to seeing how our young leaders will take their TCU education and use it to make this world an even better place.

Thank you to all of you who believe in TCU and celebrate Purple through your gifts of time, treasure and ambassadorship!

Go Frogs!
