Wayne, NJ, United States, September 16, 2016, Jean Fuller-Stanley, Associate Dean – College of Science and Health at William Patterson University of New Jersey, has been recognized by Elite Women Worldwide, for dedication, achievement and leadership in education.
It was a natural choice for Dr. Fuller-Stanley to go into science as her career, in fact, she believes science chose her. Believing that education can transform individuals, becoming involved in the administrative side of science allows Dr. Fuller-Stanley the opportunity to encourage those impacts both large and small. With more than a decade of experience in her current role, she provides students with the chance to pursue their own passion for science. Prior to joining the faculty of William Paterson University, Dr. Fuller-Stanley was a professor of chemistry at Wellesley College for more than two decades.
In order to prepare for a career in science, Dr. Fuller-Stanley first attended the University of London to earn a Bachelor of Science in chemistry. She earned a master’s degree and a Ph.D. in chemistry from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln. All of her hard work has paid off in the form of former students seeking her out nearly a decade after taking her classes to thank her for the difference she has made in their lives. She feels accomplished for being able to influence her students to pursue their own achievements. Looking toward the future, she endeavors to remain at an educational institution and solve problems that allow more students to benefit from a higher education. In recognition of her work, she has received the Extra Mile Award from the Compact for Faculty Diversity. Additionally, Dr. Fuller-Stanley is a member of The International Women’s Leadership Association and a Distinguished Delegate honored for continued contribution to the field of science education and administration.
