Dr. Trisha Van Duser

Dr. Van Duser’s education began at Stephen F. Austin State University and continued at Texas Woman’s University in 1995, where she graduated with her B.S. in Psychology in 1998. While at TWU, she served in many student leadership roles and those experiences guided her to graduate from the University of North Texas with a M.S. in 2000 and an Ed.D. in Higher Education in 2002. Her first professional role in student affairs was at Texas Woman’s University where she served in Student Life for over 6 years before joining the University of North Texas Health Science Center.

Dr. Van Duser served UNTHSC as the Executive Director of Student Services in the Division of Student Affairs before entering her new role as Vice Provost of Student Affairs in 2019. Her role allows her the privilege of working with students, faculty and staff, while focusing on the holistic development of the campus community and ensuring the safety and well-being of students. She has gladly served the UNTHSC community for over eleven years and the field of higher education for over nineteen years. She is honored to be a part of a values-based culture that thrives on teamwork, collaboration, and celebration of the individuals that touch our daily lives.

Dr. Van Duser has lived in Fort Worth, Texas, with her eleven year old daughter, Brooklyn, for over seven years, moving from the Denton area where she lived for over 17 years. She is born and raised Texan, bleeds green, and is grateful each day that she has the privilege of serving students in higher education!
