Former Oklahoma State University professor Jeanine Rhea will see her life’s work continued through the Jeanine Rhea/ Oklahoma International Women’s Forum Endowed Professorship.

The $250,000 professorship will support the Women’s Business Leadership Forum, a program Rhea led for more than a decade, as well as research and instruction in the area of business leadership, including women’s issues.

“Through the cooperation of many groups, the Spears School of Business will have its first professorship named for a woman who made a difference to hundreds of students and professionals in her 30 years of teaching at OSU and outreach to the community,” said Julie Weathers, director of the OSU Center for Executive and Professional Development.

The professorship will also be matched by the Oklahoma State Regents for Higher Education.
