NMSU associate professor named Honors College faculty fellow

Tracey Miller-Tomlinson, an associate professor of English at New Mexico State University, has been named Faculty Fellow for the Center for Undergraduate Research and Creative Activity, which is housed at NMSU’s William Conroy Honors College.

As Faculty Fellow, Miller-Tomlinson will help to develop the newly created center and promote undergraduate student engagement with the research and creative activities of the university.

“Dr. Miller-Tomlinson has a long track record of both direct supervision of student research, and she has previously worked with funded programs that promote undergraduate research and creative projects at NMSU,” said Honors College Dean Phame Camarena. “With the assistance of a steering committee of faculty experts from across the university, I have every confidence that the new center will be able to increase these kinds of collaborative opportunities for both students and faculty under Dr. Miller-Tomlinson’s leadership.”

Along with her experience in teaching and advising, Miller-Tomlinson has worked with student researchers across the university as a past Honors College associate dean and university fellowships adviser. She served as director of undergraduate studies in NMSU’s Department of English for two years, and director of graduate studies for nine years.

“I truly believe undergraduate inquiry lies at the heart of NMSU’s mission to shape the future,” Miller-Tomlinson said. “NMSU’s Center for Undergraduate Research and Creative Activity will serve as a resource for students as they apply their learning through independent research and creative arts, and for the dedicated faculty researchers who collaborate with and advocate for them. I look forward to working with Dean Camarena and the Honors College to extend their plans for this center and help build its vital relationships with mentors, departments and programs across the university.”

Camarena said even as NMSU builds its reputation for exceptional faculty productivity in research, scholarship and creative work, the university remains committed to excellence in undergraduate education.

“The new Center for Undergraduate Research and Creative Activity is designed to reflect this dual commitment as it works to bring more students and faculty together for collaboration in the research and creative life of the university,” Camarena said.

Miller-Tomlinson’s area of research is early modern English literature and drama, and is writing a book on how historical plays written for the large public playhouses contributed to the rise of the public sphere and a sense of national identity.
