James Williams (PhD), associate professor in the Retail, Hospitality and Tourism Management department, says he “is just a person that fell in love with learning.” He draws parallels from a quote from Albert Einstein, “He said he wasn’t born with a lot of talent. He was just born passionately curious. And for me, I think that curiosity has continued to allow me or enabled me to have a strong desire to be a lifelong learner.”
In 2014, the road he was on brought him to UT. Since then, he has been inVOLved with the Commission for Blacks and Faculty Senate, and continues to try to mold his students into people with inclusive and creative thoughts.
