The James and Susan Rex Institute for Educational
Renewal and Partnership opened its doors in 2010.
The Institute honors Dr. Jim Rex, former dean of education at Winthrop
University as well as the former State Superintendent of Education for South
Carolina, and Dr. Sue Smith-Rex, retired Winthrop University College of
Education faculty and a member of the Winthrop University Board of Trustees. Drs.
Jim and Sue Rex have spent their careers promoting and supporting education,
and the James and Susan Rex Institute for Educational Renewal and Partnership
honors their investment in education.
The Rex Institute is a service-oriented organization within Winthrop's Richard
W. Riley College of Education that serves, facilitates, and supports faculty
and College of Education initiatives that involve internal and external
collaboration, partnership, and outreach.
