BERNADETTE COLEMAN ’93, ’96 has dedicated her life to helping others — as an occupational therapist, parent volunteer and active TWU alumna. For the last five years, she’s been making an impact on an even bigger scale as a member of the TWU System Board of Regents.
Coleman, an occupational therapist for the Denton County Special Education Cooperative, has served on the board since 2018.
She feels honored to have approved new academic programs, weighed in on improvements for the Denton, Dallas and Houston campuses and supported Chancellor and President Carine M. Feyten’s vision for the entire university system.
“TWU was vital in my personal and professional growth, and I wanted to help make it vital for other women’s growth,” says Coleman, who earned degrees in occupational therapy. “It makes me really proud as a Hispanic woman, and the first in my family to go to college, to be on the board and to watch TWU continue to grow and strive for excellence.”

When not in board meetings, you can find Coleman cheering on the Pioneers at athletic events.
