Dr. JoyLynn Reed, who helped shaped the Intellectual Entrepreneurship Consortium (IE) when it began in the Graduate School Professional Development Program in the 1990s, has died after a 7-year battle with cancer. Reed was co-coordinator and lecturer for that program. At the time, Dr. Rick Cherwitz, founder of IE, was associate dean of the Graduate School.
Reed received her bachelor’s, master’s and doctoral degrees from The University of Texas at Austin. Most recently she was assistant professor of Psychology at UT Southwestern Medical School.
Cherwitz said, “The IE program JoyLynn helped build at UT remains as a legacy to her talents and energy. Thousands of graduate students forever will be in her debt.”
