Daniel Terry, Ed.D.
Director of Undergraduate Academic Initiatives
Office of the Provost │ Academy of Tomorrow
As an administrator in the Office of the Provost, Dr. Terry leads university-wide initiatives that center on student success and learning. He is the founding director of the University’s ePortfolio initiative, FrogFolio, and serves as course director for TCU’s first-year student success seminar, Introduction to University Life. In these roles, he provides the strategy, structure, and content for how TCU students can be successful learners in the academic community and how to reflect upon and represent their learning experiences to others. He works closely with other administrators, faculty, and staff to facilitate and assess student learning, identity development, and cognitive growth.
Terry is a graduate of Baylor University, Truett Theological Seminary, Wake Forest University, and TCU, and his executive leadership training is from Harvard University’s Institutes for Higher Education. In addition to his administrative work, he is an adjunct professor in the John V. Roach Honors College at TCU and in the Higher Education Administration doctoral program at another metroplex university. His research interests and conference presentations cover such subjects as metacognition, pedagogy, spirituality in higher education, educational philosophy, leadership development, digital education, curriculum theory, and identity development. In recent months, he chaired a regional U.S. conference on digital education and learning at TCU and delivered the keynote address at the annual conference of the Association for Authentic, Experiential, and Evidence-based Learning. He loves ideas and enjoys designing structures that help students reflect upon, integrate, and deepen their learning.
