Dr. William Koehler, Provost and Vice Chancellor for Academic Affairs at TCU, has been selected as the recipient of TCU's second annual Conference USA Award of Excellence.

The award was established in an effort to recognize and celebrate the achievements and contributions of faculty, staff and administrators within Conference USA. Nominations for TCU's award were submitted by student-athletes on campus and selected by the school's faculty athletics committee.

Serving as the University's executive administrator to the department of intercollegiate athletics is just one of the multitude of duties for Dr. Koehler. He is the chief academic officer of the University, as well as being responsible for the library, instructional services, academic services, the curriculum committee, summer school and ranch management.

Dr. Koehler has been associated with TCU since 1969 when he joined the institution's faculty as an assistant professor of chemistry. He earned his B.S. (Chemistry-1960) and M.S. (Physical Chemistry-1962) degrees from SMU and his Ph.D. (Inorganic Chemistry) from the University of Texas in 1968.
