A past president of the Professional and Organizational Development (POD) Network in Higher Education, she is a recipient of numerous university and national awards including the Outstanding Staff Award from The Ohio State University, TAMU Women’s Faculty Network (WFN) Award for Mentoring, the TAMU Association of Former Students (AFS) Distinguished Achievement Award for Graduate Mentoring, the Outstanding New Faculty Award from the College of Education Development Council, the Mildred Garcia Award for Exemplary Scholarship for a Senior-Practitioner Scholar from the Association for the Study of Higher Education (ASHE), and two awards from the Professional and Organizational Development Network in Higher Education–the Robert Pierleoni Spirit of POD Award for leadership efforts in diversity and, the named Christine A. Stanley Award for Diversity and Inclusion Research in Educational Development.

She teaches administration of higher education, college teaching, diversity and social justice in higher education, and professional development in higher education. Dr. Stanley has a passion for how colleges and universities function as organizational systems. Institutional climate for teaching and learning and the climate for minoritized faculty and students remain salient as research goals. She developed these interests in graduate school at Texas A&M from her experiences as a Black woman from Jamaica, and with the support of mentors who encouraged and supported her to find answers to the systemic social and cultural disparities in higher education institutions. In March 2019, she received the Frank W. Hale Distinguished Service Award for her leadership efforts in diversity from the National Association of Diversity Officers in Higher Education and, in 2021 the Mentoring Award from the Association for the Study of Higher Education (ASHE). Dr. Stanley has edited several books and peer-reviewed publications, including, Faculty of Color: Teaching in Predominantly White Colleges and Universities. Her research focuses on faculty professional development, administrator development, and the experiences of minoritized faculty in predominantly White colleges and universities. Her current research activities include working with colleagues in the College of Engineering, along with system institutions Prairie View A&M University, Texas A&M Corpus Christi, and Texas A&M International to study the effects of undergraduate research mentoring on the persistence and retention of African American and Hispanic students in engineering through the Louis Stokes Alliance for Minority Participation Program (LSAMP). She has consulted on faculty development and diversity issues in the United States, Armenia, Canada, China, Mexico, and South Africa.

Dr. Stanley is a native of Jamaica, The West Indies and holds a B.Sc. Degree in Biology (cum laude) from Prairie View A&M University, a M.Sc. Degree in Zoology from Texas A&M University, and a Ph.D. in Curriculum & Instruction from Texas A&M University.
